A Privilege to Serve

Dear Members of the CMU Community:

It has been a profound privilege to lead Carnegie Mellon as president over the past five years, and I am humbled and grateful to have the opportunity to serve CMU’s brilliant faculty, students, staff and alumni for another term. I wish to thank Board Chair David Coulter and the members of the Board of Trustees for placing their trust and confidence in me.

I believe even more fervently today in the unique strengths that CMU brings to this pivotal moment for society: visionary creativity and discovery, cutting-edge scientific and technological scholarship, and a commitment to developing the next generation of leaders who can tackle complex challenges with passion, focus and humanity. To the members of the Tartan community around the world: I commit to champion and support your incredible work every day.

In the years to come and working with stakeholders and partners on and off campus, our entire leadership team is looking forward to all that we can achieve together.

With gratitude,

Farnam Jahanian
Henry L. Hillman’s President’s Chair
