Georgia Tech is proud to be one of the most diverse universities in the world. We graduate more female and Black engineers than any other college in the nation. However, we must do more. It is our responsibility to recruit more students, faculty, and staff from different backgrounds, interests, and perspectives. We must then develop and support them to become leaders in their respective engineering fields.
The College of Engineering is committed to a diverse and inclusive community. This means we must ensure that each of our students, faculty, and staff is educated about all issues of diversity, equity and inclusion. We embrace persons of every race, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, religion, background, beliefs, and ability.
We also dedicate ourselves toward addressing and fighting discrimination on our campus and in our lives. This includes racism, racial bias, and racial injustice. Our shared vision is one of social justice, opportunity, community, and equity.
The College is consistently pursuing a mission that creates a community that exemplifies the best in us all, ensuring a better, more equitable, and sustainable future for everyone. We believe that our impact must reach beyond the classroom, research labs, our campus, and the technology we create. We must improve the human condition where injustice lives. We will continue to work to understand, value, and celebrate all people as we work to create an inclusive educational and work environment that welcomes all.
This is essential to our success. It is essential for our world.

College of Engineering DEI Council
The College of Engineering Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) Council was established in 2017 to identify, raise awareness, and improve policies and practices related to DEI. The group counsels the dean, while developing and proposing initiatives intended to harness the College’s intellectual diversity and promote a culture of inclusion, equity, and belonging. The committee’s efforts align with the Institute and CoE strategic plans.
The Council meets monthly and includes faculty from each of the College’s eight schools, as well as students and staff. In addition to the College’s council, the schools have also created their own DEI committees.
