—Georgia Tech’s Strategic Plan: Designing the Future
In recent years, Georgia Tech’s Undergraduate Admission has experienced a significant rise in the applications and subsequent enrollment of Hispanic/Latino students. Georgia Tech’s level of quality requires that we accept and develop the best students, and OHI has been instrumental to the success achieved in the recruitment and retention of Hispanic/Latino students.
Currently, OHI serves more than 1,500 undergraduate and graduate Hispanic/Latino students. In collaboration with OHI and other campus organizations, Georgia Tech has achieved the following:
- Since 2001, the number of Hispanic/Latino students applying to Georgia Tech has grown steadily almost every year.
- More than 270 Hispanic/Latino students have been supported by The Goizueta Foundation Scholarships and Fellowships to date, which are managed by OHI.
- Georgia Tech is consistently ranked as one of the nation’s top schools for awarding bachelor’s, master’s, and doctoral degrees in STEM fields to Hispanics/Latinos according to Diverse: Issues in Higher Education.
