IN Brief
Global Initiatives to Benefit from Record-Breaking Gift
$265 million gift to Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) from the late William S. Dietrich II, a businessman, scholar, philanthropist, and longtime CMU trustee, will be used to expand the institution’s global initiatives. The donation, announced on September 7, which became operational upon Dietrich’s death on October 7, will “serve as a catalyst for the university’s global initiatives and for its fusion of left-brain and right-brain thinking, such as studies connecting technology and the arts, as well as support future academic initiatives across the university, including undergraduate and graduate programs, scholarship, artistic creation, and research,” according to the university. This is one of the 10 largest gifts by an individual to a private higher education institution in the United States and the biggest gift in CMU’s history. Carnegie Mellon’s main campus in the United States is in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. It has campuses in Silicon Valley and Qatar, and programs in Asia, Australia, Europe, and Mexico.

Commission to Explore Career Opportunities for Grad Students
InternatIonal educator N O V + D E C . 11

he Council of Graduate Schools (CGS) and the Educational Testing Service (ETS) have formed a partnership to investigate how to address the critical need for innovators and experts in fields that are critical to U.S. success in the global economy. The new Commission to Study Pathways through Graduate School and into Careers will examine what U.S. graduate students know about their career opportunities, what graduate programs are

doing to prepare them for careers, and what the needs of the workplace are. The commission’s 14 members include university presidents, graduate deans, vice presidents for research, provosts, and industry leaders. The group will release a report outlining findings and policy recommendations in April 2012.

The two organizations partnered in 2009 on a project to examine challenges facing graduate education in the United States. That collaboration resulted in a report, The Path Forward: The Future of Graduate Education in the United States, which contended that the ability of the United States to compete in the global marketplace depends on producing graduate degree holders who are prepared to address the challenges and opportunities of the twenty-first century.
