Spring Update: Looking Ahead on A Path Forward — Together

As we enter the final stretch of our academic year, I want to take the opportunity to bring the campus up to date with regard to our progress on A Path Forward — Together, share some of the additional progress we have made in addressing concerns, and explain the implementation process that we have put in place for summer and beyond.


April 2018 Message from the President

The Georgia Institute of Technology and our fellow University System of Georgia institutions owe a tremendous debt of gratitude to former Georgia Gov. and U.S. Senator Zell Miller, who passed away March 23 at age 86 in his beloved hometown of Young Harris in the north Georgia mountains. A significant part of Gov. Miller’s ongoing legacy will always be the HOPE and Zell Miller scholarships. He championed the HOPE while governor from 1991 to 1999, and the Miller Scholarship was signed into law in his honor in 2011 by Gov. Nathan Deal as part of the HOPE program.

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.”
