Believe and Achieve: A message to underrepresented minorities, women, and all of us who are different
To think that all is fine and that discrimination, bias, and bigotry are relics of the past is to live in a fantasy, or certainly a different world from the one I live in. Dr. Bras shares excerpts from a 1998 address at MIT titled "Believe and Achieve: Success is Earned, Not Given at MIT." Written nearly two decades ago, many of those words are still valid today.
Georgia Tech Provost Rafael L. Bras recently traveled to Italy to speak to faculty, students, and administrators of several Italian universities about innovation in education.
We are proud of a legacy of sustainability that now spans more than six decades, and we will strive to realize our mission of “progress and service” as thoughtful stewards of all of our resources.
It has been nearly four years since Engineered Art: An International Sculpture Exhibit very publicly launched Georgia Tech’s arts Initiative. And a lot has happened since. But, the most important success is the increasing assimilation of arts and creativity in the daily life of our campus and, increasingly, in our curriculum. Our students and faculty appreciate how the processes of innovation, design, and creativity are shared between our core disciplines and the arts.
