Benefits Open Forum Video Now Available

Carnegie Mellon University Staff Council and Human Resources hosted a Benefits Open Forum on October 25, 2016 from noon-1 p.m. in Rangos in the Cohon University Center.  The forum was available to all staff members not represented by a bargaining unit.

The event was recorded so staff members not in attendance could learn more about the benefits packages available for 2017, which will be available during the open enrollment period which runs from October 31, 2016 - November 14, 2016.

Here is a link to that video.

You can also learn more about the Open Enrollment process by visiting the CMU HR Open Enrollment Webpage.


Employee Discounts and Perks

Everyone likes getting a bargain. But did you know that CMU faculty and staff are eligible for special deals just because they are employees of the university?

There are several activities in which CMU staff are eligible for a discount.  These discounts are made possible by the work of our Staff Council Kennywood & Entertainment Discounts Committee.

  • Scarehouse—New for 2016!
  • Hersheypark in the Dark
  • Kennywood Phantom Fright Nights
  • Cedar Point Hallo-Weekends
  • Idlewild Halloboo
