Between the years of 1966 and 1970 Carnegie Tech underwent two major changes that served to reshape and redefine the university. The creation a new undergraduate college, Humanities and Social Sciences, broadened the scope of CMU from a technically based university focused on professional training to a research university capable of incorporating technical knowledge and liberal thought. The new college called for a new type of student with broader goals and a wide range of interests. It was different from the traditional liberal arts school because of the mix of technical and liberal courses and was, therefore, more interesting and compelling to the student of the 1960's.
