About President Cabrera

A Message from the President

Progress and Service has long been the motto of the Georgia Institute of Technology, and Yellow Jackets in the 21st century have been living those values in more places and in greater numbers than ever before in Tech’s 136-year history.

Our nearly 40,000 students from 130 countries study in Atlanta, on our campuses around the globe, and through our online programs. They are preparing to join our 175,000 alumni working and making a difference here in Georgia, across the United States, and around the world. Equipped with a world-class education, they are Creating the Next in many fields.

“The talent of Georgia Tech’s students, faculty, staff, and alumni has never been more vital to driving progress and economic opportunity, and solving complex challenges.”

Ángel Cabrera

The talent of Georgia Tech’s students, faculty, staff, and alumni has never been more vital to driving progress and economic opportunity, and solving complex challenges.

There will soon be 8 billion people on this planet, and we must figure out how to improve the quality of life for all of us — how to provide clean, sustainable food and water, health care, and education; build more just and peaceful societies; and protect the natural environment on which our lives depend.

Georgia Tech has what it takes to create the technologies to tackle these challenges, to improve policies and business models, and to articulate a deeper understanding of the human impact — particularly the benefits and risks — of the technologies we develop.

Yellow Jackets stand at the forefront of those efforts. The Institute is not only a strategic asset for Atlanta and Georgia and an invaluable national resource, but it is also one of the world’s essential innovation hubs, holding the keys to finding solutions for the many pressing challenges of this century.

As a proud Georgia Tech alumnus who is now privileged to serve as the Institute’s 12th president, I invite you to join us in the important work that we have been called upon to undertake: to build a brighter future.

Ángel Cabrera
President
