Carnegie Mellon University

Our story

The Marketing & Communications division was created in 2015. Though many individuals and entities have told the university's story over more than a century, the division provides a home, hub and strategic engine for this important work. We are a team of strategic thinkers, creative problem solvers and subject experts from a variety of professional backgrounds — all with the goal of deepening CMU's reputation and enhancing the CMU experience.

Our process

From planning CMU's annual commencement ceremony to publicizing a major research initiative to creating a new design for university publications, M&C employs best practices from higher education and industry to drive toward the best outcome. After outlining the project's key goals and objectives, we develop a comprehensive plan, gather resources and ideas, and execute at the highest level.
