Georgia Tech students managed Election Day voting at McCamish Pavilion. Student volunteers including first-year physics major Ruston Shome (pictured) staffed the location. Poll workers were trained to troubleshoot issues with the electronic ballot machines. Photo taken Nov. 3 by Brice Zimmerman.

Ethics Awareness Week

The Office of Ethics and Compliance recognized Ethics Awareness Week, Nov. 9 13, with a mix of scheduled online presentations, on-demand activities, and in-person ethics tables around campus. Photo taken Nov. 10 by Christopher Moore.

MOF material

An artificial intelligence technique machine learning is helping accelerate the development of highly tunable materials known as metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) that have important applications in chemical separations, absorption, catalysis, and sensing. The machine learning platform was trained to help guide the development of new materials by predicting an often-essential property: water stability. The research was conducted in Georgia Tech's Center for Understanding and Control of Acid Gas-Induced Evolution of Materials for Energy, a DOE Energy Frontier Research Center. The vial shown contains a blue powder, HKUST-1, an MOF material. Photo taken Nov. 11 by Tania Evans.

Strategic Plan

(L-R) Scheller College of Business Dean Maryam Alavi, Provost Steven W. McLaughlin, President Ángel Cabrera, and Executive Director of Georgia Tech Strategic Consulting Sonia Alvarez-Robinson held a fireside chat-style event as part of the campus strategic plan launch. The forum allowed for discussion with an in-person and online audience about the new plan's ambitious goals and bold actions. Photo taken Nov. 19 by Rob Felt.
