Carnegie Mellon University has established a reputation for its ability to attract, retain and graduate some of the most talented individuals in the world. These people set the standard among professionals across the globe — regardless of their area of study. Take a look at just a few of the exemplary trailblazers from the academic disciplines within the College of Fine Arts who are making positive changes in our world.
CFA’s trailblazers are many, and narrowing the field is difficult because all alumni make their mark in different ways. The exceptional individuals noted here were chosen by their school or academic program head for the outstanding contributions they have made to society, thus far, affecting change, thinking critically to help others and helping to improve the world through the arts, architecture and design.
