From the President

Carnegie Mellon has always responded to society’s greatest challenges with a trademark fearlessness.


Here, we have gathered the most intelligent, inventive and collaborative researchers, educators and creators on the planet. Our students, faculty, staff and alumni are relentless in their pursuit of what’s next for humanity. They seek not only to identify the most pressing issues, but to work together to solve them, and then to ensure that their benefits are shared by all in society. At our core, we ask: How can we make the impossible possible?

Make Possible: The Campaign for Carnegie Mellon University will bring those possibilities to reality. Together, we will build the resources that accelerate our community’s vital work. We will educate and prepare students to become future leaders. And we will tackle the challenges whose solutions lie at the nexus of technology and humanity — just where CMU has developed leading expertise.

This is our moment. If we are very intentional, if we are unapologetically bold, and if we commit to taking risks, Carnegie Mellon will take the lead in writing the story of this century.

I’m excited to see what we’ll make possible, together.
