"The rich history of Georgia Tech and the city of Atlanta make this an attractive opportunity for the right individual," Murray-Rust said. "The faculty, staff and students who comprise this committee welcome our role in advancing Tech’s reputation as a leader in diversity."

A national search firm will be hired to assist in the recruiting of potential candidates. The committee will hold its first meeting in the coming weeks, receive a formal charge from the president, and finalize the position description.
