Diversity is one of Georgia Tech’s greatest strengths and one of the major priorities identified in our
strategic plan. Georgia Tech is an equal education/employment opportunity institution dedicated to
building a diverse community. We believe that diversity includes the individual differences among
people from differing social, racial, or ethnic backgrounds, gender, sexual orientations, gender
identities and expressions, economic circumstances, personal characteristics, philosophical
outlooks, life experiences, perspectives, beliefs, expectations, physical abilities, and aspirations.
Each of these characteristics, both singularly and in combination, contributes to the richness of the
Georgia Tech community. Georgia Tech has policies to promote a healthy work-life balance and is
aware that attracting faculty may require meeting the needs of two careers.
