The Career and Professional Development Center (CPDC) is Carnegie Mellon University’s centralized career services center providing a comprehensive range of services, programs and materials focusing on career exploration and decision making, professional development, experiential learning and employment assistance to meet today’s evolving workplace and student goals of finding satisfying work!
Graduate study at Carnegie Mellon is about more than just academics and research. It is also about creating a life in one of the most livable cities in the country.
In this community, CMU students are engaged architects of their own life experience. The University strives to provide an environment and opportunities that support this engagement. From day-to-day basics like housing, dining, and ID Cards, to athletic facilities and exercise classes, to museum and venue access through the Arts Pass Program group exercise classes, CMU works to take care of these necessary aspects of student life and also contribute to a student's experience and personal growth.
The Office of Disability Resources (ODR) strives to provide responsive, reasonable accommodations to help our students accomplish their best work. Director Catherine Getchell and the Disability Resources staff are passionate about providing vibrant and accessible resources on disability issues for all members of the CMU community. Our mission includes providing physical, digital and programmatic campus access to all events and information within the Carnegie Mellon community for students and visitors to our campus.
They work to ensure that qualified individuals receive reasonable accommodations as guaranteed by the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973.
