Diversity Support Services

Connect with Us!

OIE serves students, faculty, staff, and other stakeholders with a hybrid approach that includes both virtual and in-person services.  While most services are provided virtually, some matters require in-person meetings. When meeting in-person is required, an OIE staff member will contact you directly to schedule a mutually agreeable day and time for the meeting. OIE is respecting social distancing and cleaning protocols as described in “Tech Moving Forward”.

Women's Resource Center

The Women’s Resource Center strives to enhance the academic performance and personal development of the women at Georgia Tech by working to create a more inclusive and supportive campus environment for women.  The Women’s Resource Center is located in the Students Services Building (Flag Building) and offers a variety of programs for women, including speakers, a leadership conference, wilderness trips, community groups, and sexual assault resources.

LGBTQIA Resource Center

The LGBTQIA Resource Center has programs, services, and resources for all members of the Georgia Tech community, regardless of sexual orientation, gender identity, and gender expression. 

Pride Alliance

The Pride Alliance supports and provides resources for gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, and questioning (LGBTQ) students and their allies.  The Pride Alliance holds general meetings every other week and organizes several events throughout the year.

Student Diversity Services

The Office of Diversity Programs organizes and hosts a number of events throughout the year aimed at heightening awareness, acceptance, and understanding of people with diverse backgrounds within the Georgia Tech community. Programs include Diversity Week, the Diversity Forum, the Power over Prejudice Summit, and Safe Space training.

OMED: Educational Services

OMED is charged with the retention, development, and performance of the complete student learner who is traditionally underrepresented: African-American, Hispanic, and Native American students.  OMED’s mission is to successfully transition and transform today’s gifted yet inexperienced Georgia Tech student into tomorrow’s promising leader.  While OMED’s programs are targeted at underrepresented students, they are open to all Georgia Tech students.  Programs include study sessions, study groups, Focus on Physics (which helps students integrate calculus concepts into the core physics course sequence), and Concept Classes (lectures dealing with portions of course material historically found to be the most difficult).  It is located in the Chapin Building.

Office of Disability Services

Works to ensure that students with disabilities have equal access to all programs and activities offered at Georgia Institute of Technology. Our goal is to foster the full and self-directed participation of persons with disabilities in post-secondary education, including students, faculty, staff and visitors. Comprehensive support services and accommodations are available to encourage and enable them to take full advantage of Georgia Tech's educational, social, and cultural opportunities.

Religious Resources

There are dozens of religious organizations on campus. The Georgia Tech Catholic Center, the Wesley Foundation (United Methodist Church), the Campus Christian Fellowship (non-denominational), the Baptist Campus Ministry, Westminster Christian Fellowship (Presbyterian) and the Lutheran Campus Ministry each hold regular services and host several ministries. 

Hillel at Georgia Tech offers two student-led Shabbat services (Reform/Conservative and Orthodox) once a month in the Student Center, and High Holiday services at Emory University free of charge to Tech students (carpool provided).

The Muslim Students Association maintains a prayer space in the Student Center (on the third floor between the ballroom and room 321). The Al-Farooq Masjid is the largest in Atlanta and is within walking distance of campus.

Georgia Tech hosts a chapter of Hindu YUVA, a socio-cultural organization that aims to preserve, practice, protect, and promote Hindu culture and heritage.  

Other student religious/spiritual organizations include the Baha’i Club, Operation Seventh-Day Adventist, and the Nichiren Buddhist Student Association.  Information about these and other groups is available through Jacket Pages.
