Facilities & Equipment - Inspire Innovation - Carnegie Mellon University

Enhancing an Innovative Environment

The Carnegie Mellon campus has an energy and excitement equal to the amazing work being done here.

The campaign has created physical enhancements such as the new Gates and Hillman Centers, which are driving new thinking and discovery, and improved spaces across campus for learning and collaboration.

The campaign also supports new academic research space. The Robert Mehrabian Collaborative Innovation Center, which was created as a new vision for industry and university partnerships, brought Microsoft, Apple, Google and Intel together under one roof. A second Collaborative Innovation Center will create additional venues for leading research.

Gifts to support facilities and equipment provide the academic, living and recreational spaces to inspire innovation.
