Highlights from the CFO and CIO
Angela Blanton, Vice President for Finance and CFO
It is my honor to present Carnegie Mellon University’s Annual Financial Report for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2022 (FY22).
Our world is changing every day. Even before the pandemic caused numerous shifts in how we work and live, digital transformation was accelerating across industries and public life. Carnegie Mellon stands at the forefront of this change, as the birthplace of innovations that reshape society. This is a responsibility and opportunity that we take very seriously. The financial strength and sustainability of Carnegie Mellon is about so much more than dollars and cents — it is about creating and nurturing an environment where big ideas flourish. It is about ensuring that the university can fulfill its mission and pursue its vision of a better, more equitable future.
Charles A. Kennedy, CIO
