Congratulations Graduates!

Earning a degree from the Heinz College of Information Systems and Public Policy is a challenging and rigorous undertaking. It takes remarkable dedication to one's studies and perseverance in the face of obstacles—this has been especially true this year. 

On behalf of all faculty, staff, and leadership at Heinz College, Dean Ramayya Krishnan warmly congratulates the following individuals for earning their degrees in the 2019-2020 academic year.

Celebrate with your friends AND loved ones on Social Media


We encourage students, classmates, family members, and loved ones, to share congratulatory message, photos, and videos via Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter in the days leading up to and following the event. Be sure to tag @HeinzCollege in your public posts and use the hashtags #CMUgrad, #HNZ20, #TartanProud, and #IntelligentAction to celebrate your accomplishments and memories with your fellow graduates. We will be pulling all of the public posts using these tags and hashtags onto this web page as a Memory Wall.

We are also excited to share some customized Heinz College Awards Ceremony filters and frames that we've created to help you take your social engagement to the next level.
