Georgia Tech has been a leader in contributing to the dynamic nature of the community by being listed as one of the nation’s top institutions that awards engineering, physical science and architecture degrees at the Bachelor’s, Master’s and Doctoral levels to all minority students. As great as this diverse campus is, more can be done to unify the Georgia Tech community.

As international barriers and boundaries are broken through cross communication, economic expansion and political globalization, cultural diversity is rapidly increasing. In order to develop intercultural harmony, appropriate leadership must be practiced to embrace the new backgrounds, ideas, and ways of life.
