Creating a Culture of Academic and Inclusive Excellence
Embracing student diversity and multiple perspectives is critical to the success of the campus community. As part of Institute Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion, the Center for Student Diversity and Inclusion encourages students to excel academically, interact across cultures and perspectives, and value inclusion.
The Center for Student Diversity and Inclusion also strives to be a positive, enriching environment to connect diverse students, faculty, staff, alumni, and community stakeholders through effective programs, projects, networks, and research.
Focusing on the recruitment, retention, and advancement of underrepresented minority and women students, the Center for Student Diversity and Inclusion currently houses the following units: the Office of Hispanic Initiatives (OHI), OMED: Educational Services (OMED), the Impact Learning Community, and Center for the Study of Women, Science, and Technology (WST).
Following a national search, Diley Hernández was selected as associate vice president for Institute Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion. She began her new role on July 6.
The Career Alliance @ Georgia Tech is a new initiative that provides traditionally underrepresented students with focused support for success in today’s competitive job market.
On June 18, the Office of Minority Educational Development and campus Black student organizations partnered to host Juneteenth events, which included a virtual discussion led by Associate Professor André Brock and an afternoon celebration on Tech Green.
