Diversity Resource Guide - Carnegie Mellon University

Diversity Resource Guide

Diversity is a top priority of Carnegie Mellon University, and has been such for over a decade. It began in 1999 with President Emeritus Jared Cohon’s first diversity statement. This sparked several initiatives including the formation of the Diversity Advisory Council, highlighting the inclusion of diversity as a vital element in our 2008 Strategic Plan, and now informing our current work on access, meaningful engagement and representation through the Guiding Principle of University Culture. Throughout these years, diversity at Carnegie Mellon has continued to grow and to evolve. We are a community that understands diverse perspectives and backgrounds breed the intellectual vitality essential for the health and progress of the university.
