Campus Communities

Students, faculty, and staff should take advantage of the centers, offices and affinity groups found across the CMU community.

Center for Student Diversity and Inclusion

The Center for Student Diversity and Inclusion actively cultivates a strong, diverse and inclusive community. The center offers resources to enhance a transformative student experience for all in dimensions such as student success, campus climate and intergroup dialogue. 

Additionally, the center supports and connects historically underrepresented students and those who are first in their family to attend college in a setting where students’ differences and talents are appreciated and validated.

Recruiting and Staffing Services

The research, educational experience and campus life at Carnegie Mellon are significantly enhanced when our faculty, staff and student body are diverse. Race, gender, religion, socio-economics, sexual orientation and gender identity, disability, national origin and ethnicity are some of the many dimensions of diversity that we value. While all hiring decisions are made based on professional qualifications, we seek to achieve a diverse group of applicants for all of our positions.

The Carnegie Mellon community consists of individuals from diverse religious, spiritual, and secular backgrounds. There are many ways for students to engage in Spiritual, Religious & Interfaith Life at Carnegie Mellon. Our mission is to support all students along the spectrum of religious and spiritual practice and exploration.
