2021 Year in Review

Our 2021 Year in Review highlights the many ways in which the Dietrich College community has contributed to improving the human condition through education, research and community outreach.

In this Year in Review, you’ll learn more about Dietrich College faculty who are working within and beyond their own disciplinary boundaries to make a positive impact on society. This past year, our experts were frequently sought after for their timely expertise on topics such as vaccine hesitancy, risk perception, race and identity and language and polarization.

Our community outreach initiatives also have grown considerably. In 2021, Carnegie Mellon University launched the Center for Shared Prosperity, a significant step forward on the university’s commitment to deeper engagement with, and economic empowerment of, the broader Pittsburgh community. Through this center, which has an administrative home in Dietrich College, along with the Pittsburgh Summer Internship Program, Arts Greenhouse and LEAP, our students, faculty, staff and alumni are addressing real-world challenges with a focus on access, equity and self-expression.

We invite you to read more about these and many other exciting developments in the pages that follow.
