Diversity is one of Georgia Tech's greatest strengths. With an underrepresented population of 45 percent, Georgia Tech is one of the most diverse universities in the world. We have students who represent every state in the nation and more than 100 countries of the world. Georgia Tech students should graduate knowing how to learn, live, work, and lead in a global world.

Student Diversity Programs provides an institutionalized approach for meeting the co-curricular needs of students by coordinating and planning educational opportunities that enhance interaction and learning across groups. Through intentional programs like Diversity Week, the MLK Student Celebration, the Power Over Prejudice Summit, and Diversity Through the Arts, the Office assists the campus in understanding, appreciating, and celebrating Tech's rich cultural diversity.

Workshops and training opportunities are available for students, student groups, faculty, staff, and departments. The Office of Student Diversity Programs annually provides training for more than 800 students, faculty, and staff and present workshops that reach more than 5,000 individuals.

Student Diversity Programs also works to eliminate discrimination and acts of intolerance on campus. Such acts involving students or student groups should be reported to the Office of the Dean of Students. Georgia Tech values each and every member of our community and this commitment is thoroughly outlined in our Strategic Plan: "We will remove barriers of access for underrepresented students, champion lifelong learning, and recruit and retain a diverse faculty and staff."
