It takes a certain kind of character to be a Yellow Jacket.
Every day presents new challenges and new opportunities to stand up for what is right. We will own our mistakes, learn from them, and always seek ways to improve. Georgia Tech will grow and evolve, but our commitment to cultivating character and preserving the public trust remains at the core of what it means to be a Yellow Jacket.
Our Core Commitments
We believe in building an inclusive, just, and safe campus environment in which everyone can thrive. People make Georgia Tech what it is, and we are those people.
We believe in being clear and open, without agenda or condition. The free, honest exchange of information is vital to achieving our long-term goals.
We believe in doing what’s right, for the sake of what’s right. Together, we bear a responsibility to weigh every decision in light of our mission to educate and serve.
