The Georgia Tech community is continuing the important work of addressing the many challenges brought to light by the recent events here on our campus. Significant progress has been made on identifying the leadership, membership, and charge for three of the four action teams outlined in my letter to campus Sept. 23. The formation and charge of the Campus Safety Action Team has been delayed, however, pending the completion of the investigation by the Georgia Bureau of Investigation.
We are looking to the Georgia Tech community to support these teams with their ideas, input, and suggestions; to provide information; and to “think outside of the box.” One of the trademark strengths of Georgia Tech is that we work in teams to develop powerful solutions that change lives. We have a strong reputation for innovation, leadership, and addressing global challenges. We are just as concerned about the health and well-being of our own community as we are about addressing those of a global nature.
“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.”
