As part of Institute Diversity’s Center for Student Diversity and Inclusion, OMED: Educational Services seeks to successfully transform today’s gifted yet inexperienced student into tomorrow’s promising leader.
We are 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.
With an innovative approach to promoting excellence, by stimulating life-long learning, and cultivating high-performing problem solvers, OMED equips students with the strategies to navigate the Georgia Tech environment.
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.
“Because of OMED’s Challenge program, I met some of my closest friends and earned a 4.0 GPA during my first semester at Tech. I am successful today because of OMED and its staff.”
— Kyle Woumn, alumnus, School of Computer Science
The first African American students and graduate will be recognized at the Diversity Symposium on September 4, 2019.
