50 Year celebration of Carnegie Mellon

CMU-Q celebrates 50 years of CMU

The CMU-Q community gathered to celebrate the 50-year anniversary of Carnegie Mellon University, including students, alumni, and faculty and staff members.

Michael Trick, dean of CMU-Q and a member of the Carnegie Mellon faculty for nearly 30 years, remarked to the students: “The real legacy of Andrew Carnegie and Andrew Mellon is that they created a place that celebrates and encourages hard work, ingenuity, teamwork, and innovation. Students, it is your turn to make your mark in the world.”

Carnegie Mellon University was officially formed in 1967 when Pittsburgh-based Carnegie Institute of Technology and the Mellon Institute research center merged. Bringing together the two institutions was transformative, catapulting Carnegie Mellon to worldwide influence.
