On behalf of Institute Diversity’s Center for Student Diversity and Inclusion, I’d like to thank you for your interest in OMED.
Metropolitan State University of Denver Associate to the President for Diversity Myron R. Anderson once wrote, “You can have diversity without excellence, but you can’t have excellence without diversity.”
Since 1979, OMED has been committed to providing academic support and mentorship to traditionally underrepresented students – African-American, Hispanic/Latino, Native American, and Multiracial – although our programs and initiatives are open and beneficial to all students at Georgia Tech.
At Georgia Tech, we understand that diverse collaboration often sparks great innovation – creating the next solutions that will improve human life in a meaningful way. From interning at NASA to launching startups like The Black Burdell, which provides scholarships and workshops to cultivate entrepreneurs, Afrithmetic, which provides math tutoring to inner city students, and The Diamond Campaign, which provides mentorships for middle school girls, our students are defining what’s next at Georgia Tech and beyond, and we are very proud of them.
If interested in learning more about OMED, I encourage you to visit the Center for Student Diversity and Inclusion to take a tour of the renovated Chapin Building, learn more our programs and initiatives, and meet our talented staff.
To increase capacity to serve more current and future students, we welcome partnerships with foundations and donors. Please feel free to contact me or Atira Rochester at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss partnership opportunities. My colleagues and I welcome your suggestions to help us continually enhance our programs and support our students.
To our students at Georgia Tech, OMED is here to provide resources that assist you with matriculating through the Institute and cultivating your experiences. We encourage you to take advantage of every opportunity that the Institute has to offer – from study abroad to internships. You are here because you are some of the best and brightest, and we hope that you cherish every experience at Georgia Tech. GO JACKETS!
