Carnegie Mellon University

A Message from the President

As a leading research university, Carnegie Mellon University is positioned like no other institution to define and manage the space where human life and technology meet, to address complex problems and to inspire creative expression. We offer a distinctive, world-class education in which a new generation is cultivating deep disciplinary knowledge while learning collaboration and leadership. 

Bound by a core set of values that includes integrity, inclusion, collaboration and empathy, our global community of students, faculty, staff and alumni is meeting the challenges of the 21st century. We have embarked on an ambitious agenda and created a Strategic Plan 2025 to position us for a future of growing excellence and global significance. Our priorities focus on building a diverse and collaborative university community, improving the individual experience for all of its members, and expanding our capacity for positive societal impact. 

On behalf of the entire university leadership, I welcome your input and involvement as we educate, create, discover and innovate for a better future.
