Does the institution have mentoring, counseling, peer support, academic support, or other programs to support underrepresented groups on campus?:

A brief description of the programs sponsored by the institution to support underrepresented groups:

We are committed to developing engaged, global citizens with an appreciation for diverse people and experiences, a cross cultural fluency, and concern for the welfare of others. We provide a broad range of opportunities for students to discern an understanding of their responsibility to the larger community. Examples of these opportunities include: Community Service initiatives; Leadership programs; Spirituality or faith-based organizations; Multicultural initiatives; Strong Women Strong Girls mentor program

The Carnegie Mellon Advising Resource Center (CMARC) is committed to supporting students in their academic and personal development. We work with students to maximize their educational experience by promoting informed and responsible decision making. As an advocate for diversity and inclusiveness, CMARC promotes social and academic networks between peers, communities, and cultures.
The Carnegie Mellon Advising Resource Center (CMARC) was founded under the name Carnegie Mellon Action Project (CMAP) in 1968. In the spring of 2005, after evaluating Carnegie Mellon’s advising needs and in adherence with new educational mandates, CMAP transitioned to the Carnegie Mellon Advising Resource Center (CMARC). It has refocused its advising efforts and broadened its audience without losing sight of the university’s commitment to diversity.

A brief description of the institution’s discrimination response policy, program and/or team:

Carnegie Mellon is firmly committed to intellectual honesty, freedom of inquiry and expression, and respect for the dignity of each individual. Acts of discriminatory harassment or intimidation by a student directed toward any member of the community are inconsistent with this commitment and will not be tolerated.
