Carnegie Mellon University

Self-Study Working Groups

With support from the Deans and Vice Presidents, the Provost appointed distinguished members of the faculty and staff to lead the university through its 2018 Self-Study process. These members represented a broad cross section of the university, and they were charged with demonstrating the university's enduring excellence in serving its students, faculty, staff, and alumni and illustrating CMU's significant contributions to the region, nation, and the world. And, true to Carnegie Mellon's unwavering

process of self-examination and improvement, this group surfaced new opportunities that further advance the university's educational mission.

Reaccreditation is a "team sport." Its success relies not only on the expertise and leadership of the faculty and staff who served on these groups, but also drew on the support and contributions of faculty and staff colleagues across the university and at its many locations around the globe. These collaborations showcased Carnegie Mellon's distinct position as one of the world's prominent higher education institutions.
