Sharing humanity together while we're apart

CMU President Tim Foster has issued a call to all faculty, students and staff to pull wisdom from their disciplines. Our goal is to reinforce the role of our University and spread some positivity, uplifting thoughts and remind everyone that we will, in fact, get through this crisis together.

Message from President Foster

"So let us begin anew – remembering on both sides that civility is not a sign of weakness, and sincerity is always subject to proof. Let us never negotiate out of fear, but let us never fear to negotiate. Let both sides explore what problems unite us instead of belaboring those problems which divide us." John F. Kennedy
