The Georgia Institute of Technology launched its new Strategic Plan for 2020 - 2030 on Thursday, November 19, 2020 with a fireside chat titled “Progress and Service for All” featuring President Cabrera, Provost Stephen McLaughlin, and Dean Maryam Alavi of the Scheller College of Business, along with moderator Sonia Alvarez-Robinson, Executive Director for Strategic Consulting.
The plan has been in the works for over a year and centers around six strategic focus areas - Amplify Impact, Champion Innovation, Connect Globally, Expand Access, Cultivate Well-Being, and Lead by Example. These new areas align with Tech’s new mission statement of “developing leaders who advance technology and improve the human condition,” which was approved by the Board of Regents in May 2020.
“Our six strategic focus areas each have a priority goal with four to six key objectives that describe the expected outcomes we anticipate as we implement this plan,” said Dr. Cabrera.
The one-year planning process included input from more than 5,700 individuals, a 64-member steering committee, and six working groups comprised of 250 students, faculty, staff, and alumni along with the president and two co-chairs, Alavi and McLaughlin.
