Minority-Student Government - Carnegie Mellon University

Minority Resources

Because of its diversity, there are a number of organizations representing our student population.  The CMU Admissions website maintains a list of all student organizations. 

Women

The CMU chapter of the Society of Women Engineers (SWE) seeks to “Stimulate women to achieve full potential in careers as engineers and leaders, expand the image of the engineering profession as a positive force in improving the quality of life, demonstrate the value of diversity”.

Attracting and advancing women is a priority at the Tepper school. As part of a select group of schools and corporations, they are working in concert with the Forté Foundation, a consortium of major corporations, top business schools, and influential nonprofit organizations that are dedicated to substantially increasing the number of women in business.  Their website is a great resource for women interested in business.

The Fellowships and Scholarships Office maintains a list of scholarships for women.

The GSA maintains a sexual harassment page here.


Ethnicity

The Black Graduate Student Organization (BGSO) is a support group for graduate students of color as they pursue academic excellence on the campus of Carnegie Mellon University. Throughout the academic year, BGSO provides graduate students with cultural, academic, and professional support. BGSO members represent African, African-American, Hispanic/Latino, and Islander Heritages.

The GSA also maintains an international student resources page.


LGBT

The mission of Out@Heinz is to promote a welcoming environment for the LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender) community at the Heinz College and to increase LGBT policy awareness within the Heinz community.  We also seek to promote the professional development of both our members and the greater student body.

The Fellowships and Scholarships Office maintains a list of scholarships for LGBT students.
