A dynamic experience that enables students to thrive.

The greatest thinkers, researchers, creators and makers in the world inhabit our campuses. And when you join us in offering them support from every angle, there’s no limit to what they’ll make possible.

Carnegie Mellon is reshaping the support of every Tartan’s intellectual, personal, social and professional growth.

Imagine a campus where students have access to the financial support to pursue their education, learning is enriched with state-of-the-art instructional technologies, and student life is enhanced with diversity initiatives and health and wellness programs that address the student holistically.


A Stronger CMU Experience

By amplifying strategic areas of the student experience, we’ll make each student’s time at Carnegie Mellon more productive, engaging and enriching. With your support, we will:

Innovate Learning

  • Grow CMU’s leadership in learning science and in technology-enhanced discoveries that transform higher education.
  • Increase opportunities for students to make use of educational technology and take part in real-world experiences — from making and creating in the lab and studio, to studying and service in Pittsburgh and throughout the world.
  • Empower students with innovative 21st-century library spaces and expanded resources that will promote collaboration and accelerate educational initiatives.

Build Community

  • Develop new opportunities and spaces for students to engage, and incorporate professional development and personal growth goals into the learning experience from the first semester.
  • Create residential neighborhoods where students can live, socialize, collaborate, exercise and recharge, with access to mentoring, advising and community support resources at their fingertips.
  • Expand support services for physical and mental health, and increase facilities for recreational fitness.

Increase Access

  • Cultivate the pipeline of students who are prepared for a CMU education.
  • Grow endowed and expendable scholarship and fellowship support to increase accessibility and make our student body even more diverse.
  • Amplify academic support structures that prepare students for the next stage of their lives and careers.
