Diversity and Inclusion

Human Resources is dedicated to the fair treatment, access, opportunity and advancement for all people. We strive to achieve greater inclusion at Carnegie Mellon University and eliminate barriers that have prevented diversity.

Integral to Our Mission

To cultivate a transformative university community committed to (a) attracting and retaining diverse, world-class talent; (b) creating a collaborative environment open to the free exchange of ideas, where research, creativity, innovation, and entrepreneurship can flourish; and (c) ensuring individuals can achieve their full potential.

CMU's Mission and Vision

Advocated by the President

"A diverse and inclusive community is the foundation for excellence in research, creativity, learning and human development, and is, therefore, at the core of our mission as a university. As a CMU community, we all bear responsibility for supporting this foundation — with each and every faculty member, senior leader, student and staff person contributing to the effort."

— Dr. Farnam Jahanian
