2020 Faces of Inclusive Excellence
Twelve faculty, staff, and students in the Ivan Allen College of Liberal Arts were awardees at the 2020 Georgia Tech Diversity and Inclusion Symposium.
The Ivan Allen College of Liberal Arts enthusiastically embraces the values set forth in the Georgia Tech strategic plan— a welcoming, inclusive culture; mutual respect among faculty, staff, and students; and celebration of uniqueness in thought, background, perspectives, and intellectual pursuits. These values are inherent in all that we do and are set forth in the principles that guide our work.
At Georgia Tech and in the Ivan Allen College of Liberal Arts, we expect high performance and world-class achievements in research, education, and public action, and we believe that with an inclusive culture, these expectations become, not just possible, but predictable and sustainable.
Our committment to diversity and inclusion is long-standing as part of our founding principles and Mayor Allen's legacy of social responsibility, social justice, and social courage. To further strengthen the visibility and impact of our committment, in September 2019 we established a Diversity and Inclusion Council within the College. Participation in the council is open to all faculty, staff, and students in the College. Additionally, school chairs nominate faculty, staff, and students for participation.
Here is the council statement of Faculty-Staff Expectations. The the dean's office designates budget to support these.
