  • Open Books White Paper (ps) (pdf)
  • University's tax return (external site)
  • Carnegie Mellon's budget page (where we'd like to see all figures released)
  • FY2003 Operating and Capital Budget -- the same information presented to the board of trustees.

Current Activites

We are currently working to prepare for our November 7th meeting with Bill Elliott, Vice-President of Enrollment at Carngie-Mellon. Before that meeting we plan to:

  • Collect petition signatures from students and faculty
  • Request resolutions supporting opening the books from the student and faculty senates
  • Arrange for media coverage of the meeting and its results
  • Meet with staff unions to seek their support in opening the books

If you would like to become involved in this campaign or want further information please don't hesitate to contact the PSA.
