Inspirational Quote:

“On rare occasions, some few institutions of higher education in the US have the opportunity to contribute meaningfully and deeply, through their core activities of education and research, to pressing global tensions, and global human priorities, in ways that only they might. As it pertains to Carnegie Mellon’s international engagements, there are two areas that stand out in this regard for the 21st Century: the relationship between the West and the Arab/Islamic world, and the imperative of the development of Africa, particularly sub‐Saharan Africa. There are surely many deep challenges facing our planet over the next hundred years—energy/environment and climate, the threat of nuclear war and of terrorism, the potential of lethal pandemics, and the stubbornness of deep poverty and lack of economic development. In dealing with these issues successfully there are few powder keg domains as important or as vexing as the relationship of the West with the Arab/Islamic world, or the development of the “lost continent” of one billion Africans. Were the university able to have meaningful impacts in these areas we would be contributing to humanity in ways that transcend even our outstanding normal missions and ambitions.”–Mark Kamlet, Provost, Carnegie Mellon University
