Mehrabian's Legacy Honored
Jared L. Cohon (from left), Carnegie Mellon's eighth president, Robert Mehrabian, Carnegie Mellon's seventh president, and Donald F. Smith Jr. (HNZ'94), president of the Regional Industrial Development Corporation, pose in front of the newly re-named Robert Mehrabian Collaborative Innovation Center. CMU and the RIDC partnered to develop the center during Mehrabian's presidency. An overflow crowd on hand for the dedication heard speakers praise the former president for his contributions to economic development in Pittsburgh and to undergraduate education, student life and technology commercialization at CMU.
