Carnegie Mellon University is stimulating ideas at the World Economic Forum …
… and helping to shape the global, regional and industry agendas.
CMU is one of only 25 universities in the world, 11 in the U.S., invited to join the Global University Leaders Forum (GULF). Business members of the Forum include the top 1,000 companies from around the world who drive the economy forward, and who collaborate on shaping global, regional and industry agendas.
As CMU's representative to GULF, President Jared Cohon has attended the Forum since 2011, taking part in sessions and conversations that continue to elevate the strategic goals of the university. And CMU faculty present and participate in panels, labs, councils and sessions that propel ideas among leaders and colleagues worldwide.

Erica Fuchs, Associate Professor, Engineering and Public Policy, was selected in 2012 to the Forum's Community of Young Scientists. Each year, only 40-50 scientists under the age of 40 are selected to participate alongside business and political leaders in the Annual Meeting of the New Champions in China (Summer Davos). These scientists are selected from all regions of the world and from a wide range of disciplines to contribute their scientific perspective and deliver the most up-to-date trends from various fields of science.
Justine Cassell, the Charles M. Geschke Director, Human-Computer Interaction Institute, is the head of the Forum's Global Agenda Council on Robotics and Smart Devices. Global Agenda Councils are a unique, global community of over 1,500 premier thought leaders who are the foremost experts in their fields of academia, business, government, international organizations and society.
