Vice President's Message-University Advancement - Carnegie Mellon University

Vice President’s Message

Robbee Baker Kosak

No university in the U.S. News and World Report Top 25 is younger than Carnegie Mellon University, and no institution of higher education has come so far so fast.

Carnegie Mellon takes immense pride in our extraordinary impact on the world, which is especially notable given our comparative youthfulness as a university. The Times Higher Education-QS World University Rankings agree with our excellence on a global scale, naming Carnegie Mellon in the top 30 of "The World's Top 200 Universities."

Through collaborating and sharing perspectives across disciplines and focusing on solving real world problems, Carnegie Mellon faculty continually define new research fields and educational strategies, while developing innovations that make a difference in the way we all live and work today, and for the future.

It’s the job of University Advancement to educate our alumni, donors and friends about these success stories at Carnegie Mellon. It’s also our job to involve our constituents in the life of the university — sometimes that involvement happens through volunteering; at other times through financial support.

Whether it’s a story on our homepage or an event bringing alumni together or a presidential visit in India, we aim to achieve a maximum return on our investment through an integrated approach that brings together each member of the Advancement team.

With a commitment to excellence, we strive to be an employer of choice for world-leading advancement professionals, a place where careers grow and where people are challenged to reach their highest potential. We strive to remain on the leading edge of the advancement profession and we encourage employees to explore their professional goals and always work for the greatest ROI on behalf of Carnegie Mellon. With dedicated individuals working toward the same objectives, we can truly make a difference.

We're up to the challenge.
