Summer Academy for Math and Science (SAMS)

The Summer Academy for Math and Science provides rising high school seniors with a strong interest in computer science, engineering and/or the natural sciences, with the opportunity to achieve essential skills necessary to pursue and complete majors in STEM fields. 

The Summer Academy curriculum includes seminars and highly collaborative hands-on projects, designed and taught by Carnegie Mellon faculty, outstanding teachers and graduate students, carefully chosen due to their commitment to teaching.

Center for Student Diversity & Inclusion

The Center for Student Diversity and Inclusion actively cultivates a strong, diverse and inclusive community capable of living out these values and advancing research, creativity, learning and development that changes the world.

The Center, in its inaugural year, offers resources to enhance an inclusive and transformative student experience in dimensions such as access, success, campus climate and intergroup dialogue. Additionally, the Center supports and connects historically underrepresented students and those who are first in their family to attend college in a setting where students’ differences and talents are appreciated and reinforced.

This year marks the 50th annivesary of the Carnegie Mellon Action Project (CMAP) program. CMAP, renamed Carnegie Mellon Advising Resource Center (CMARC) in 2006, supported CMU students of color in finding community and resources to not only persist, but thrive.
