Main Campus Events

The Office of Government Relations works with campus organizations as well as outside groups to bring elected officials to the university's main campus in Pittsburgh. The goal of these efforts is to give our federal, state and local leaders a chance to witness Carnegie Mellon's world-class education and research programs first hand. We also work to include elected officials in campus-wide celebrations, like 2004's Robotics Institute 25th Anniversary. The Government Relations office was the primary point of contact for many of 2008's Presidential Campaign events, including appearances by now-President Barack Obama, Michelle Obama and Senator John McCain. 

If your department or academic center would like to hold an event at which an elected official would be a welcome addition to the guest list, please contact Jennifer Layman, Assistant Director, at 412-268-1605 or for help in arranging that visit.
