Apprenticeship & Mentorship

Strategic Recommendation

Expand access to apprenticeship and mentorship educational models for undergraduate and master's students.

  • Encourage learning through projects, research, and other models that facilitate more direct student interaction with faculty.
  • Ensure all undergraduate students have an opportunity to engage in research or project-based activities during their time at Carnegie Mellon.
  • Provide majors and non-majors with opportunities to gain experience solving real-world problems, learn how to pose important questions, deal with uncertainty, and engage deeply with expert faculty mentors and advisors.
  • Promote strong faculty-student, peer-to-peer, and alumni-student connections and role modeling.
