Speeches and Presentations

2021 Institute Address

What this community did last year was simply remarkable. Though different, the situation was equally complex. And we not only went through it, we thrived and ended up delivering one of our most impactful years ever. I have no doubt we will do it again, together.

2020 Institute Address

This has been a truly extraordinary year. Over the past six months, we have navigated through one of the most difficult periods in our history. We have each faced unique challenges in our own personal lives. And, together, we have managed to keep Georgia Tech strong and delivering on its important mission.

2019 Institute Address

Thank you. It is such an honor to be back at Georgia Tech. Never in my wildest dreams could I imagine that one day I would be asked to return to Georgia Tech as president. Today standing here before you, it’s still hard to believe, but I’m thrilled to be back here in this community that has always been home to me, and I am so excited to begin working with all of you to write the next chapter in the history of this great institution.

President Cabrera's Investiture

There are still many bridges that need to be crossed to make our society more just and prosperous, to bring about freedom, opportunity, and peace to people around the world, to help us all live healthier, safer, more enlightened lives. And much of that work can once again start here in Atlanta, in the classrooms, the labs, the innovation spaces at Georgia Tech.


President Cabrera’s key speeches and select public appearances are made available here. These and other presidential documents, including archives from past Georgia Tech presidents, are housed in our institutional repository, SMARTech.
