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 provides equal opportunity to all faculty, staff, students, and all other members of the Georgia Tech community, including applicants for admission and/or employment, contractors, volunteers, and participants in institutional programs, activities, or services. Georgia Tech complies with all applicable laws and regulations governing equal opportunity in the workplace and in educational activities. Georgia Tech prohibits discrimination, including discriminatory harassment, on the basis of race, ethnicity, ancestry, color, religion, sex (including pregnancy), sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, age, disability, genetics, or veteran status in its programs, activities, employment, and admissions. This prohibition applies to faculty, staff, students, and all other members of the Georgia Tech community, including affiliates, invitees, and guests.
