Carole M Panno

Associate Director, Development

Food Drive Committee Chair

5000 Forbes Avenue
Pittsburgh, PA 15213

I started at CMU 1993

As a development officer, I primarily meet with alumni, parents, and other friends of the university to encourage gifts and thank donors for their philanthropic support.

During my term, I would like to see Staff Council continue to keep staff informed on important issues, help to foster transparency within the university community surrounding such issues, continue our focus on health, wellness, and staff benefits, and spearhead initiatives that impact the Greater Pittsburgh community, including our campus and beyond.

I can help make these things happen by continuing my service as Food Drive Chair and a member of the Communications Committee, two roles that I would be honored to continue to hold.

I am currently serving as an at-large rep and running for re-election. Throughout my time on Staff Council, I have participated on a variety of committees, including the Food Drive and Communications Committees. Most notabley, I have chaired our annual food drive for many years, for which we continue to achieve great success, securing over $104,000 in cash and nonperishables from our November 2022 drive, alone!
