Over the course of the Future of Higher Ed Challenge, we've been featuring Q&As with our Challenge Sponsors, the organizations and individuals who have partnered with us in building this Challenge, and will play a significant role in supporting top ideas moving forward.

This week, let’s get to know Georgia Tech, one of our 4 awesome Challenge sponsors.

Image title


The Quick Facts

The Georgia Institute of Technology is a leading research university committed to improving the human condition through advanced science and technology.

The Juicy Details

What are 3 words that describe your organization?

Transformational. Technological. Community-driven.

If your organization had a superhero doppelganger, which would it be?

Buzz, the Georgia Tech mascot. He may not be a superhero in the comic book sense, but he’s a superhero for all students and faculty across campus.

What brought you to the Higher Ed Challenge? Give us one word that describes your feelings about it!

"Opportunity". Faced with different students, a changing socioeconomic climate, learning and teaching transformed by science, and workforce demands for future skills, a 21st century Georgia Tech is likely to be quite different from Georgia Tech of the 19th and 20th centuries. Thus, innovation in higher education is essential to the continued leadership and quality of a Georgia Tech education.

If you could give participants in the Challenge one piece of advice, what would it be?

Think broadly and don’t be afraid to challenge the status quo. The pace of change is accelerating in higher education and now is the time for bold ideas!

The Commission on Creating the Next in Education (CNE) at Georgia Tech

What are the biggest opportunity areas you see in the higher ed space?

We see many opportunity areas in the space. To name a few:

     1. As high school enrollments decline in many states, how will Georgia Tech compete effectively for a smaller pool of eligible students?
     2. As our country’s population becomes more diverse, how might we respond effectively to a wider array of learner diversity in terms of gender, language and culture, prior experiences, and economic status?
     3. As career paths become less linear and more entrepreneurial, how can higher education institutions better prepare their graduates for success?
     4. How can our academic and political systems better address issues of access and affordability?

What kinds of ideas or solutions are you most excited about seeing in the Challenge?  

Georgia Tech is excited to see which ideas from the OpenIDEO Challenge can be applied to directly benefit our far-reaching community of learners. Expanding upon solutions produced in the Challenge, Georgia Tech’s CNE will lead Institute-wide discussions of fundamental questions surrounding topics such as the knowledge 21st-century students should gain and how sustained lifelong learning differs from the transformational learning experience of recent high school graduates. In a sense, CNE and Georgia Tech’s participation in the Challenge is an opportunity to deepen the knowledge needed for our community to pursue strategic “options” that can be exercised over the next 20 years.

Tech Tower, the oldest building on Georgia Tech's campus

The Fine Print:

Where is your organization headquartered?

Atlanta, Georgia

What is your organization’s mission?

The Commission on Creating the Next in Education (CNE) is an initiative of the Educational Innovation Ecosystem, a coordinated effort of Georgia Tech units dedicated to the adoption of new and innovative educational methodologies. Through a multi-phased approach, the CNE will take a look at the Institute’s current methodologies and approaches, benchmark best practices in higher education, including issues of delivery and accessibility, and make recommendations for a plan that will maximize Georgia Tech’s strengths, and position the Institute as a transformational leader amongst research institutions.

Who does your organization work with?

Georgia Tech seeks to improve the human condition in Georgia, the United States, and around the globe. This means that K-12, undergraduate and graduate students, as well as lifelong learners from all parts of the world, are a part of the Georgia Tech community.

Questions? Please contact Susie Ivy (susie.ivy@comm.gatech.edu) or Brittany Aiello (baiello@cc.gatech.edu).

Kenapa harus Fiforlif?
Fiforlif Super Fiber Bernutrisi Super Minuman Herbal Atasi Perut Buncit Dan Rampingkan Perut Secara Alami Tanpa Efeksamping Apapun

Fiforlif menjawab kebutuhan kesehatan usus kita, tidak hanya bermanfaat untuk DETOX (mengeluarkan racun dari dalam usus) tapi juga tidak kalah penting adalah memberi NUTRISI & GIZI yang sangat dibutuhkan oleh tubuh kita dengan kandungan fiforlif yang luar biasa.Fiforlif Produk Herbal Untuk Kesehatan Pria dan Wanita

Fiforlif bukan obat pelangsing Herbal. dan juga bukan obat diet.
FIFORLIF bekerja untuk mengeluarkan toxin dalam tubuh melalui saluran cerna.Apakah setelah minum FIFORLIF berat badan akan turun?
YA! itu sangat bisa terjadi pada orang yang jarang melakukan detox, sehingga toxin dalam tubuh terakumulasi kembali sesuai dengan pola makan & pola hidupnya dan FIFORLIF menyerap toxin, mengikat toxin, membuang toxin & memberi NUTRISI komplit bagi tubuh untuk kesehatan & aktifitas sehari-hari.FIFORLIF juga sangat baik sebagai “pendamping” program diet anda! FIFORLIF bukan pelangsing tubuh, namun sangat mungkin dengan toxin yang terbuang melalui BAB maka ukuran perut mulai meramping, FIFORLIF tidak membuang lemak di lapisan perut, tapi membuang lemak & toxin yang mengerak/ mengendap di usus besar yang sulit untuk dibuang karena berada di lipatan usus.Kandungan FIFORLIF adalah super fruit GOJI BERRY (wolf berry), aneka buah & sayur bernutrisi tinggi yang sangat baik untuk kesehatan anda, sudah menjadi hal umum bahwa jaman sekarang tidak semua orang rutin konsumsi buah & sayur-mayur setiap hari sehingga kurang akan serat/ fiber maupun kekurangan vitamin penting.

It hurts when my five year old daughter ask if Daddy will be coming whenever we are celebrating on a round table. Meanwhile I was used to celebrating every holiday season alone for two years after my husband abandoned us for another woman.
But I promised during last Thanksgiving that I will give her an unforgettable gift this Christmas Holiday. I didn’t know it will be possible and at the same time I didn’t want to disappoint my Daughter. It was an impossible request presented to Dr. Wakina’s table through dr.wakinalovetemple@gmail.com with a time frame, I don’t want to be a lying Mommy.
Believe me when I say it was an unforgettable moment between my Husband and our Daughter when he came knocking on Christmas Eve. Something I never thought will be possible became a reality. Love Spell is real and Dr. Wakina is genuine.

It was too late for me to realize that my six-year-old marriage was only an episode, I feel that I try every time to convince my husband to love, commit and respect me as the queen of his heart but time worsened everything, he never changes to becoming the man I once fell in love with despite my humanly efforts.
I was encouraged to share this review eight month after my husband’s loyalty was restored by a man I call my spiritual father; dr. wakina {dr.wakinalovetemple@gmail.com}. My spiritual father practically made our hearts unbreakable and our love 10 times stronger. We have been enjoying the benefits of his spell on us.
Hope you are encouraged never to let go after reading this review? Note that there is hope and love on the other side only if you begin now to fight for the future. Thanks for your time.

Looked with changed understudies, a changing financial atmosphere, learning and educating changed by science, and workforce requests for future aptitudes, a 21st century Georgia Tech is probably going to be very unique in relation to Georgia Tech of the nineteenth and twentieth hundreds of years.
