Task Force on the CMU Experience

In an email to campus on April 20, 2016, CMU leadership convened an internal campus-wide task force to closely examine the Carnegie Mellon University experience and develop recommendations to enhance this community for students, faculty, staff and alumni.

A total of 30 faculty members, staff, students, alumni and senior administrators served as members of the Task Force, with an additional 70+ members of the campus community engaged in initiative teams related to health and wellness, academic policies, and faculty and staff development.

In year one the Task Force implemented several short term wins for the campus community and established plans for long-term projects. In year two, many of these long-term projects were brought to fruition, in particular the creation of new academic policies. To learn more about the progress of the Task Force and goals for year two, read the Presidential Report for 2017.
