The Women, Science, and Technology (WST) Living Learning Community offers programs addressing academic and professional issues for women students who live together and who connect with one another and faculty through monthly dinners, bi-weekly lunches, campus receptions, and research panels. WST sponsors undergraduate research partnerships for WST Learning Community students, and residents may be paired with a faculty/staff mentor.
WST Learning Community residents are required to attend the WST Learning Community orientation. In addition, each student must attend five WST or Learning Community events and/or meetings with a WST mentor each term. Each WST Learning Community member is expected to serve on a WST Learning Community committee.

Institute Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
Institute Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion ensures Georgia Tech recruits, develops, retains, and engages a diverse team of students, faculty, and staff with a wide variety of backgrounds, perspectives, interests, and talents.
We oversee the six Georgia Tech ADVANCE Professorships, which enhance gender diversity in the faculty. We also direct the Center for the Study of Women, Science, and Technology (WST).
Our office addresses issues of student diversity and inclusion via the Center for Student Diversity and Inclusion — which houses OMED: Educational Services, the Office of Hispanic Initiatives, and WST — for women and historically underserved and underrepresented populations.
