Institute Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion


Institute Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (IDEI) at Georgia Tech provides leadership to establish priorities, policies, and programs that support our mission as a leading technological university in the 21st century.

IDEI works with the executive leadership team of the Institute to ensure that we recruit, develop, retain, and engage a diverse cadre of students, faculty, and staff with a wide variety of backgrounds, perspectives, interests, and talents who will contribute to our mission and vision. IDEI also works with campus leaders to ensure that our core values of diversity, equity, and inclusion are embedded in equal opportunity and non-discrimination practices.

Institute Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion oversees the six professors of Georgia Tech's ADVANCE Program, who work to enhance gender diversity in the faculty and Center for the Study of Women, Science, and Technology (WST). IDEI also addresses issues of student diversity and inclusion via the Center for Student Diversity and Inclusion which oversees academic transitions and success, retention, and graduation for women and historically underserved and underrepresented populations. IDEI also houses Staff Diversity, Inclusion, and Engagement and the Equity and Compliance Programs unit, which houses the Institute's Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Compliance and Title IX offices.
