Initiatives Making an Impact

 

The A&F division-level strategic plan, launched in 2020, outlines our shared vision for the next decade. It supports the goals of the Georgia Tech Institute Strategic Plan (ISP) and impacts the Georgia Tech community each day by amplifying impact, leading by example, and cultivating well-being.

The current focus is on programs and initiatives that drive action in the following areas:

  • Champion operational excellence
  • Drive sustainable growth
  • Increase campus engagement

The plan is an integral part of the budgeting process and shapes the performance goals for A&F employees.
