Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging (DEIB) Program
Computing Services strives to create an inclusive culture that empowers employees, fosters mutual respect, and increases opportunities for advancement. Through coaching, mentoring, promoting, and recruiting qualified, diverse leadership and staff, we can advance our department's mission to innovate collaboratively and produce transformative solutions.
We have established an internal Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging (DEIB) committee to plan and structure our intentional contributions toward realizing the DEIB goals set for the university. The team will follow guidelines introduced by institutional leadership as they work through several projects aligned to achieve CMU’s strategic goals.
- Created a project team to help communicate DEIB goals.
- Established the Computing Services Spotlight (CSS) Awards and Recognition program to allow colleagues and partners to recognize exceptional performance, outstanding teamwork, and overall contributions of staff members to our organization.
- Developed hiring guidance to ensure equitable engagement with candidates and the best possible recruitment outcome.
- Started a mentorship program to connect experienced professionals (mentors) with colleagues (mentees) to facilitate knowledge sharing, skill development, and promotion of DEIB principles within our organization.
