Office of the Vice Provost for Education

Each day, we have the privilege of working with the extraordinary students, faculty, and staff of Carnegie Mellon University. The core ambition joining us all is the opportunity to create and disseminate our knowledge, our art, and our research to affect humanity in meaningful ways.    

Our engagement with colleagues across the university, the region, the nation, and the world focuses on students—their education, their artistic creation and creative inquiry, and their ability to make the world better. Our collaborations strengthen student learning; connect students to research, grant, and fellowship opportunities; and enable students to apply their skills in outreach and service to others.

The core values that Andrew Carnegie instilled in the university's founding more than 100 years ago—practical problem solving, collaboration, and creativity—continue to drive us today. I invite you to support our effort to enrich the lives of our students as they build their pathways to become scholars, citizens, and leaders in our communities around the globe.
