Groundbreaking Ceremony

On October 30, 2015, Carnegie Mellon University and the Tepper School of Business broke ground on the future site of the Tepper Quad, marking the official launch of the 4.5-acre site as a centerpiece and "new north" on the Carnegie Mellon campus. Students, faculty, staff, alumni, and donors joined alongside lead benefactors and university leadership in signaling support for the $201 million project. This major addition to the university will connect different parts of campus and different elements of the university community in a transformative model of teaching, learning and research.
