A Message to Our Supporters

The commitment of alumni and friends to the liberal arts has been crucial to the success of the Ivan Allen College. With this support, we demonstrate on a daily basis that the liberal arts are a pillar of strength for innovation and achievement at Georgia Tech.

We take great pride in our distinctive advantages:

  • The promise of our remarkably talented undergraduate, graduate, and professional students.
  • Our faculty, whose research has a commanding presence in their fields, and whose commitment to the highest quality educational experience is steadfast.
  • Our trusteeship of the legacy of Ivan Allen Jr., mayor of Atlanta from 1962 to 1970, an exemplary urban leader and a man of extraordinary character and vision.
  • Colleagues across the Georgia Tech campus who share our vision of academic excellence, innovation, and entrepreneurship, our desire to link research to ethical action, and ourcommitment to local and global leadership.

We are delighted that alumni and friends share our goals and priorities and provide the generous support needed to fulfill and advance them. This support makes it possible to continue the evolution of our success that started with our very first class in 1888.

To build on this momentum, we must have the philanthropic resources that will allow us to strengthen our world-class faculty by increasing the number of endowed chairs and professorships; to attract the brightest, most talented students through undergraduate scholarships and graduate fellowships; to support innovative interdisciplinary programs; and to provide the first-rate facilities that enhance research, teaching, and learning.

The Ivan Allen College of Liberal Arts is playing a vital role in shaping not only the future of Georgia Tech, but also the way in which the Institute continues to be instrumental in making our city, state, region, nation, and world a better place to live, work, and thrive. Your support helps to make the critical difference.
