What is a Legacy? 

A legacy is a student who has family members (both immediate and extended) who are alumni of Carnegie Mellon University. In other words, we recognize the relationship between students and parents, grandparents, siblings, aunts, uncles, etc.

Volunteer with the Parents Leadership Program Today

The Parents Leadership Program welcomes alumni parent volunteers! Your personal CMU journey—first as an alumnus and now as a CMU parent—gives you a unique perspective that can be helpful to other parents and students. Volunteers host and participate in events, assist with fundraising activities, and serve as ambassadors for the university, fostering relationships with other parents. If you are interested in participating, please contact Kathy Bogacki at 412-268-5303, or find more on parent volunteer opportunities.
