Carnegie Mellon University

Our Team

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.
