Welcome to Georgia Tech's Institute Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
“In the years ahead, we must continue to enhance a culture of collegiality, close collaboration, global perspective, intercultural sensitivity and respect and thoughtful interaction among a community of scholars that includes all of our students, faculty, and staff.” —Georgia Tech Strategic Plan
We aspire to be an Institute that pursues excellence and embraces and leverages diversity in all of its forms. 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. A strong partnership with the Offices of Human Resources, Legal Affairs, and the Division of Student Affairs ensures our compliance with all federal and state laws regarding Equal Opportunity, Title IX, and The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).
Institute Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion oversees the six professors of Georgia Tech's ADVANCE Program, which work to enhance gender diversity in the faculty, and Center for the Study of Women, Science, and Technology (WST), co-directed by three faculty members. WST links the study of science and technology to those of gender, culture, and society, connecting faculty and students in research partnerships. Institute Diversity is also addressing issues of student diversity and inclusion. Currently, two units, OMED: Education Services and Office of Hispanic Initiatives, address academic transitions and success, retention, and graduation for women and historically underserved and underrepresented populations. IDEI also houses the Institute's ADA Compliance and Title IX units.
OMED: Educational Services welcomes Jelani T. Liddell as its assistant director of Outreach Initiatives.
