The Division of Student Affairs: Vision, Mission and Values


The core objective driving the student affairs vision at Carnegie Mellon Qatar is to create the ideal undergraduate experience where students will be engaged, challenged and supported.


Our mission is founded in our belief in the development of the student across a wide array of content areas from the personal, professional, social, emotional, physical and intellectual. To that end we have in place numerous resources and educational programs to support students in reaching their highest potential and achieving their goals. Our work is underscored by the constant provision of personal care and attention given to each student: this student-centered approach has undoubtedly enriched the student experience and has consequently contributed toward the ideal state that we seek.
