Carnegie Mellon University School of Drama Core Values

We seek to be a community of educators, learners, leaders, and artists who cultivate an equitable, diverse, open, and inclusive community based on empathy and integrity in order to:

  • Promote artistic and individual growth through exploration, experimentation, iteration, and creative play.
  • Pursue rigorous collaborative and artistic creation, synthesizing histories and innovation.
  • Foster courage, curiosity, resilience, adaptability, and the joy of work.
  • Nurture and maintain wellness through sustainable personal, professional, and ecological practices.

We respectfully acknowledge that the space in which we gather is on the traditional lands of the Haudenosaunee (Iroquois Six Nations): Cayuga, Mohawk, Oneida, Onondaga, Seneca, Tuscarora. We honor the original ancestors of this land and offer respect for the enduring relationship that exists between Indigenous Peoples and their traditional territories. We strive to uncover and remember the history of our local indigenous communities and build mutual respect across cultural boundaries.
