Diversity is one of Georgia Tech’s greatest strengths. With a minority population of 34 percent, Georgia Tech is one of the most diverse universities in the world. We have students who represent every state in the nation and more than 100 countries of the world. Diversity programs provide an institutionalized approach for meeting the cocurricular needs of students by coordinating and planning educational opportunities that enhance interaction and learning across groups. Through intentional programs like Religious Awareness Week and Disability and Diversity Week, the office assists the campus in understanding, appreciating and celebrating Georgia Tech’s rich cultural diversity. Workshops and training opportunities are available for students, student groups, faculty, staff and departments.
Diversity programs also work to eliminate discrimination and acts of intolerance on campus. Acts involving students or student groups should be reported to the associate dean of students. Georgia Tech values each and every member of our community and this commitment is thoroughly outlined in our human relations statement.
Diversity programs are responsible for fostering a vision of diversity appreciation which is actualized through intentional educational programming in support of the institute’s strategic plan. The office will provide a systemic approach for meeting the needs of underrepresented populations by coordinating and planning educational opportunities which enhance interaction and learning across groups. Through its programs and services, the office will assist the campus community in appreciating and embracing the rich cultural diversity which exists within the institute.
