Commitment to Diversity
Enhancing diversity at Carnegie Mellon is one of the top priorities of the university. It has been included as a major focus in the university's strategic plan. The research, educational experience and campus life at Carnegie Mellon are significantly enhanced when our faculty, staff and student body are diverse. Race, gender, religion, socio-economics, sexual orientation and gender identity, disability, national origin and ethnicity are some of the many dimensions of diversity that we value. While all hiring decisions are made based on professional qualifications, we seek to achieve a diverse group of applicants for all of our positions.
A message from Jared L. Cohon, President, Carnegie Mellon
Carnegie Mellon University remains committed to the principles set forth in our Equal Employment Opportunity and Affirmative Action Policy. As an institution, we guarantee that employment decisions are made using hiring practices consistent with government regulations and the university’s pledge to assure diversity.
We will continue to promote affirmative action so that all members of our university community-regardless of race, gender, sexual orientation, disability or other factors-have the opportunity to develop their capabilities and achieve their goals.
Supervisors are key agents in the application of these principles. In all phases of the employment process, you must consider the goals of affirmative action and equal employment opportunity. Your understanding and implementation of the university’s policy are critical to ensuring that we honor our commitment to diversity and non-discrimination. I thank you for your attention to this and your efforts on the university’s behalf.
