A Day to Celebrate Our Veterans, A Year-Round Effort to Honor Them

One day each year is dedicated to honoring America's service men and women who have done so much, our military veterans. While we will stand in solidarity with our veterans on this Veterans Day, Nov. 11, here at Georgia Tech we are working every day in many different venues to improve the lives of these dedicated Americans and the service branches they so proudly represent.

A Path Forward – Together: Action Teams Report Out

In our ongoing effort to address the challenges brought to light by the events earlier this semester, the three Action Teams — “Student Mental Health,” “Campus Culture,” and “LGBTQIA Community Support” — have completed their tasks and submitted their respective reports.

We challenged the Action Teams with an aggressive timeline; now, we are placing that same challenge on ourselves. Having reviewed the reports, I have asked our campus leadership to do the same, and provide detailed implementation plans that outline the responsible party, a timeline for implementation, and the resources required for each of the recommendations addressed in the three reports as they pertain to their specific areas of responsibility. We will then take that information and develop an action plan, with both short- and long-term goals. By the end of fall semester, we will share a report with the campus community that includes both our implementation plans and the steps taken to date.


 

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.”
