Since taking the helm as Tech's 12th president, Ángel Cabrera has been a man on a mission. His first day was filled with opportunities, both planned and unplanned, to meet members of the campus community and get to know Georgia Tech in a new way — not as a graduate or a parent, but as president.
In the days that followed, his efforts continued apace. In addition to giving his first Institute Address, President Cabrera attended several campus events, including the football home opener, the opening of Tech’s newest mental health facility, and the ceremony honoring four young men who blazed a history-making trail at the Institute.

The day before he officially assumed the role of president, Ángel Cabrera ran into members of the Society of Black Engineers taking group photos in Harrison Square. They introduced the incoming president to the Boomerang app and invited him to jump in.

The new Center for Assessment, Referral, and Education (CARE) has been open since the start of the fall semester. On Monday, the campus community celebrated with a ribbon-cutting event in the Smithgall Student Services (Flag) Building. The event was also part of Suicide Prevention Week at Georgia Tech.
