President’s Update Celebrates Institute’s Wide-Reaching Impact

Primary tabs

This spring, 23 G. Wayne Clough Tech Promise scholars will walk across the stage at commencement to receive their diplomas.

“The Tech Promise Program ensures that every qualified Georgia resident has access to a Georgia Tech education, regardless of family income,” said President G. P. “Bud” Peterson. “The education these 23 graduates possess will have a real and lasting impact not only on their lives but also for generations to come. There is a parallel here to Georgia Tech as an institute — the impact is broad, far-reaching and lasting.”

This year’s Spring President’s Update not only highlights the Institute’s impact on a state, national and global level, but it also showcases many of the year’s successes in areas including research, manufacturing, innovation, diversity, and student and campus community achievements.  

“While this update highlights many of our successes, there are countless other ways that members of the Georgia Tech community are contributing to the Institute’s teaching, research and entrepreneurship collaborations,” Peterson said. “My thanks goes out to everyone who is helping Georgia Tech define what the technological research university of the 21st century should be.”
