The School of Drama mourns the passing of our distinguished alumnus, René Auberjonois. René was a wonderful supporter of the school who kept in touch with us throughout his busy and very successful career. A multi-award winning actor, René gave the Carnegie Mellon Commencement address in 2001. Warm-hearted, quick-witted, wise and kind, René was a true original. On behalf of our school community, We send condolences to his family and loved ones. Vale René.
