The Unfolding Crisis in UkraineThe Carnegie Mellon community stands in solidarity with the people of Ukraine, and with the CMU students, faculty, staff and alumni who have loved ones in, or close ties to, that region. We condemn these recent acts of unprovoked aggression by an authoritarian government as antithetical to the values for which CMU stands. We will continue to hope for a swift and peaceful resolution to this heartbreaking crisis, and to the senseless human suffering and inevitable destruction it is causing.
