History

In 1979, Georgia Tech created the Office of Minority Educational Development (OMED). Over four decades, OMED has demonstrated outstanding success.

Our second decade saw a paradigm shift. Focusing on how gifted our students were – else they would not have been accepted into Georgia Tech – we began to raise expectations for student performance. We directed our attention toward the educational process and became OMED: Educational Services. We have adopted a data-driven, quality approach toward the business of education with students being identified as “customers.”

A diverse workplace can only be achieved and maintained by a commitment to innovative and sound philosophies that strategically produce successful sustained partnerships and academic performance.

The Chapin Building has housed OMED: Educational Services since 1979. Recently renovated, the Chapin Building is located on 681 Cherry Street NW, Atlanta, Georgia 30332-0600.
