Since its founding in 1900 by industrialist and philanthropist Andrew Carnegie, Carnegie Mellon University has focused on finding real solutions to the problems facing society. Whether they attended Carnegie Technical Schools (1900-1912), Carnegie Institute of Technology (1912-1967) or Carnegie Mellon University (1967-present), our alumni became the innovators of their generation who made a difference in the world.
Despite many changes, the Carnegie Mellon University of today has much in common with the Carnegie Technical Schools of 1900. The school still encourages great thinkers with diverse backgrounds to collaborate toward practical goals. It preaches collaboration and innovation across traditional barriers of knowledge, producing extraordinary individuals who leave their mark on the world. Above all, Carnegie Mellon still maintains a commitment to students, practical research and education.
The university is dedicated to enhancing undergraduate education so that students can explore other disciplines while maintaining a core focus on their primary subject. Realizing that today's graduates must understand international issues, Carnegie Mellon is now a global university with an ever-expanding presence across international borders.
In his letter to the mayor of Pittsburgh establishing Carnegie Technical Schools, Andrew Carnegie wrote, "My heart is in the work." Today, the students, faculty and staff of Carnegie Mellon University continue to live and work by these words.
At Carnegie Mellon, we believe a diverse campus community is essential to enriching intellectual exchanges and enhancing cultural understanding. Likewise, it is important for the diversity of our community to reflect our regional, national and global constituencies. We rely on our Statement of Assurance and our Equal Employment Opportunity/Affirmative Action Policy to inform our commitment.
Each year, the university develops an affirmative action plan detailing our goals and progress to date. University leaders share the responsibility for implementation, and we continuously monitor our progress to ensure that the university's non-discriminatory policy is carried out. For more detailed information on implementation and evaluation, please see our Compliance and Policy information.
President Emeritus Jared L. Cohon issued a statement in 1999 about why diversity is important to Carnegie Mellon, which spurred the development of the President's Diversity Advisory Council (DAC). Since then, DAC initiatives include issuing a Diversity Problem Statement and a statement outlining the benefits of diversity in higher education. See the Diversity Resources Guide for detailed information about the university's diversity initiatives.
Carnegie Mellon will meet the changing needs of society by building on its traditions of innovation, problem solving, and interdisciplinarity.
To create and disseminate knowledge and art through research and creative inquiry, teaching, and learning, and to transfer our intellectual and artistic product to enhance society in meaningful and sustainable ways.
To serve our students by teaching them problem solving, leadership and teamwork skills, and the value of a commitment to quality, ethical behavior, and respect for others.
To achieve these ends by pursuing the advantages of a diverse and relatively small university community, open to the exchange of ideas, where discovery, creativity, and personal and professional development can flourish.
Carnegie Mellon has remained true to three primary objectives:
to deliver distinctive, first-quality education;
to foster research, creativity and discovery; and
to use the new knowledge created on campus to serve society.
