“In the years ahead, we must continue to enhance a culture of collegiality, close collaboration, global perspective, intercultural sensitivity and respect, and thoughtful interaction among a diverse community.”
—Georgia Tech’s Strategic Plan: Designing the Future
As part of Institute Diversity’s Center for Student Diversity and Inclusion, OMED: Educational Services is charged with the retention and development of traditionally underrepresented students: African-American, Hispanic/Latino, Native American, and Multiracial. However, our programs and initiatives are open to all Georgia Tech students.
Since 1979, OMED has been committed to providing academic support and mentorship to students, while continuing to foster a supportive and inclusive campus environment. Our students set the standard for what the next generation can accomplish with a high-quality education and community support.
In collaboration with OMED and other campus organizations, Georgia Tech is consistently ranked as one of the nation’s top schools for awarding bachelor’s, master’s, and doctoral degrees in STEM fields to African-Americans, Hispanics/Latinos, and Native Americans according to Diverse: Issues in Higher Education.
