Carnegie Mellon University

Welcome New and Returning Graduate Students!

The Graduate Education Office will be fully remote for the Fall 2020 semester. Our workshops, resources, professional development opportunities, and interactions will continue virtually. Please do not hesitate to reach out to us, join us for a Zoom workshop, provide feedback on the virtual delivery of services, or let us know how we can help you navigate the semester. Our website and email remain the same, as does our desire to partner with you, GSA and university partners to make Fall 2020 one for the record books!

A priority is to help you connect to other grad students, campus resources and staff, professional & personal development opportunities and social events. Our newsletter will be coming to you and we welcome input on content.  The Grad Ed Office's Graduate Student Community Calendar (Pittsburgh Campus) is known campus-wide as a robust curation of opportunities for graduate students to join. We look forward to connecting with you and connecting you with others!
