A Path Forward — Together

A Path Forward — Together

The Georgia Tech community is continuing the important work of addressing challenges in four broad categories – student mental health, including a focus on both counseling and psychiatric services; campus culture; LGBT+ community issues; and campus safety.

On Sept. 23 President Peterson announced the formation of four action teams of faculty, staff, students, and community leaders to research each area, gain community input, and recommend a path forward by Nov. 1., if at all possible. Additional information and resources will be provided on this site as they are available and appropriate to share.

On Oct. 2 President Peterson introduced the leadership, membership, and charge for three of the four action teams. The formation and charge of the Campus Safety Action Team has been delayed pending the completion of the investigation by the Georgia Bureau of Investigation of the Sept.16 incident on campus.

A Path Forward – Together: Action Teams Appointed

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.
