Dedicated to Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

Differing perspectives drive our academic excellence and spirit of innovation. But, in a world where systems have created inherent advantages for some and disadvantages for others, simply recognizing the value of our differences is not enough. We need to make things right so no one is left out.

Our goal at Carnegie Mellon is to ensure that everyone — regardless of background — has the same opportunities from admission through graduation and beyond.
