Big day for the university

William S. Dietrich II, a Pittsburgh industrialist and longtime trustee of Carnegie Mellon University, has announced a plan to provide a record-breaking gift of a $265 million fund to support CMU.

This is the largest gift in the university’s history and it will have real impact across CMU for years to come.

The gift furthers the university’s ability to educate students in strong interdisciplinary problem-solving and supports the unique recipe for education offered by Carnegie Mellon’s seven schools and colleges, all of which are leaders in their fields.
