Supporting the Georgia Tech Family 

On Dec. 4 Georgia Tech President G. P. “Bud” Peterson shared a message with the Georgia Tech community about a student’s death, and the commitment of students, faculty, and administrators to strengthen a culture of support. Peterson and John Stein, vice president for Student Life, asked fellow staff and faculty to join in “Open Door Day” on Dec. 5 to demonstrate openness and a willingness to be available for one another.

Peterson said, “Along with our pledge of continued support to all in our community, I am now asking for your help. We are a large community, and while in this age of technology we are comfortable with the concept of ‘alone together’ in our studies and research, it does not work when people need emotional support, someone to help them, to listen or to point them to the many resources available to them.”

Increasing Access, Reducing Costs, and Meeting Future Workforce Needs

The Georgia Institute of Technology has long been known as a leader in education and innovative solutions to a multitude of challenges. Through the focused efforts of more than 50 faculty, staff, and students over the past two years, the Commission on Creating the Next in Education has identified a series of recommendations and actions that will place Georgia Tech at the forefront of innovative educational institutions. The Commission, launched by Provost Rafael Bras, has conducted extensive research and explored innovative approaches to higher education that address the changing needs of learners and educators alike, including ways to improve effectiveness, increase access, reduce costs, and meet the needs of workforce development today and well into the future. The results of this effort are now available in the report entitled “Deliberate Innovation, Lifetime Education.”

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. 

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.”
