The Tepper Quad

The construction of the Tepper Quad represents a transformational step toward revolutionizing the way business education can be delivered.  As an inter-connected campus keystone, the new home of the Tepper School will host the Swartz Center for Entrepreneurship and the Simon Initiative and will bring together Carnegie Mellon University's immense strengths in business, science, technology, policy, arts and the humanities.

The Tepper School’s world-class undergraduate and graduate programs will find an innovative and collaborative home in the new building.  Your support of the Tepper Quad provides a multitude of exciting opportunities that will make an impact on the Tepper School experience in big ways. As we prepare for this significant move, your gift enables us to strengthen and grow the areas that have buoyed success throughout our history – and allows us to invest in new programs that will shape our future.  To make your gift to the Tepper Quad today, visit

Help us Build the Bridge

A $10,000 gift payable over two years will support the construction of the Level 3 bridge that connects the undergraduate and graduate wings of the Tepper School. Level 3 will be a high-traffic area, housing the Accelerate Leadership Center, the Swartz Center for Entrepreneurship, Student Services and a variety of team study and collaboration spaces. This gift will be recognized with a permanent display of the donor’s name in this highly visible location.

Please join in on the opportunity to make an impact via the new Alumni Bridge, which will serve as a focal point in the new building and connect all constituents of the Tepper School community to one another and to Carnegie Mellon — symbolically and literally.
