Almost half of Carnegie Mellon University in Qatar (CMU-Q) graduates this year are Qatari. Since 2009, this is the largest proportion of Qatari graduates.
The Qatar Foundation has designated CMU-Q as a partner university. Graduates from the Class of 2021 represent 23 different nationalities, and almost half of them speak more than one language.
The diversity of the classes, according to Michael Trick, dean of CMU-Q said “I was appointed dean of CMU-Q as these students began their university education. I have seen them come together as learners, celebrate and share their cultures, and grow as global citizens. They are an extraordinary group of young men and women.”
More than a third of the class has done community service while at CMU-Q, and almost half has started or led a student club or group. “At CMU-Q, we encourage students to pursue their interests and develop skills in organization and leadership,” Trick said
