Carnegie Mellon University

The Andy Awards

The Andy Awards, named for Andrew Carnegie and Andrew Mellon, are a tribute to the spirit of teamwork and dedication embodied by the staff at Carnegie Mellon University. Individual staff members and teams of colleagues whose work has had a significant impact on the university are recognized for their outstanding performance and commitment to excellence through the Andy Awards program.

Awards are given in six categories: Commitment to Diversity, Equity and Inclusion, Commitment to Excellence, Commitment to Students, Innovative and Creative Contributions, Spirit, and Teamwork and Collaboration

Our Hearts are Here

Andrew Carnegie’s 1900 declaration "My heart is in the work” has become the unofficial motto of Carnegie Mellon University. Much like the Carnegie steel that built America, CMU staff are the building blocks upon which this university stands and thrives. Their dedication and commitment to excellence and to advancing the university does not go unnoticed. The Andy Awards program aims to recognize the legacy that each individual and team of colleagues forge through their hard work day in and day out.
