    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.
