​Welcome to the CMU Advancement Board. 

 Welcome to the CMU Development Board website! As a long time board member and CMU alum ('82), it is my privilege to welcome you and thank you for your support. Why do we donate our time, resources and/or money to our alma mater?  The answer is simple. CMU has evolved to a world class university that changes the lives of people around the world. By supporting CMU and its vision, each of us can have a significant impact on the communities of Michigan and the broader world.

CMU's profound and far-reaching impact is possible through the generosity of the friends and alumni of the university. These leaders have helped CMU (not an Ivy League School) create the number one neuroscience program in the United States, as well as cultivate world-class medical and engineering schools, and leadership in STEM education through our School of Education. Personally, my life has been greatly enriched by the guidance of professors and coaches, and friendships among the CMU family. 

The possibilities are truly limitless on what CMU will do now and into the future – the impact too prolific to comprehend. Our obligation is to facilitate continued progress, so that the next generation of students gain the experiences and learning that advance our world. This can only be done through your generosity. 

Thank you for your contributions to the Development Board or your consideration to join our cause. Together, we can continue the tradition of excellence. 

Fire Up Chips!
