Institute Impact

Commitment to Ethics

Georgia Tech is entrusted by students, parents, taxpayers, sponsors, alumni, donors, and friends with resources and with the responsibility to fulfill our mission of education, research, public service, and economic development. This trust and responsibility require a commitment to ethical standards to assure others that our activities are executed in the best interest of those who support us and of those we serve. 

A Path Forward Together

A Path Forward – Together was created to unite student, staff, and faculty voices around broad themes as a means for creating meaningful, positive change in the student experience at Georgia Tech. In fulfilling the Institute’s commitment to an inclusive, safe, and healthy community, it was designed with three areas of emphasis:  Student and Community Life, Academics, and Health and Well-being.

Commitment to Diversity

“We will recruit, develop, retain, and engage a diverse cadre of students, faculty, and staff with a wide variety of backgrounds, perspectives, interests, and talents, creating a campus community that exemplifies the best in all of us—in our intellectual pursuits, our diversity of thought, our personal integrity, and our inclusive excellence.”
