Tartan Community Day

Tartan Community Day is a day for students, faculty and staff to take a break from the daily norm and to connect, restore and play, in meaningful ways.

The first Tartan Community Day took place in 2019 and was an outcome of the Task Force on the CMU Experience, which was convened in 2016 to prioritize and enhance a community experience where all members can engage, build resilience and thrive.
