"This is not just a new building ... this is a new vision of education." 

David A. Tepper, MSIA 1982
President and Founder, Appaloosa Management, L.P.

The David A. Tepper Quadrangle, or Tepper Quad, will transform the Carnegie Mellon University educational experience. The new home to the Tepper School of Business, the Tepper Quad will facilitate a fresh model of business school education. Physical and intellectual space will be shared between the Tepper School and other CMU colleges and programs. Located at the center of campus, innovation in teaching and research creates collaboration that brings disciplines together that typically are separate on most campuses.

The Interconnected University

Imagine a place where current and prospective students, families, alumni and community members come together to be a part of the CMU experience. The Tepper Quad provides the ideal environment for interconnected learning, such as collaborative spaces, a new auditorium, flexible study areas, incubator spaces and a new maker space. It will be a catalyst for campus-wide collaboration, home to CMU's first University Welcome Center — a destination for campus visitors to experience the full breadth of the CMU story.
