Carnegie Mellon University

At Carnegie Mellon University, our people are our greatest asset. 

Diversity, equity and inclusion guide our values and serve as our foundation. 

We seek and cultivate diverse populations and perspectives and promote equity and inclusion. We do so because it is paramount to our health and well-being. Diversity, equity and inclusion are also critical to academic excellence and innovation.

We must not only define these words, we must also be vigilant in our commitment to build and sustain a community that embraces these core values. 

Let's continue on this journey together.

We understand and value that every individual is unique. We see this uniqueness shaped by race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, age, physical abilities, religious beliefs, political beliefs and other life experiences and ideologies. 


At CMU, we are intentional about eliminating barriers that have prevented full participation and increased access to resources and networks for underrepresented groups across our student, faculty and staff populations. 


We believe that every person at CMU should feel as though they belong here. We are learning how to involve more unique perspectives and actively invite participation from historically underrepresented groups in order to make our community a better place for all.
