Black History Month

Georgia Tech's mission is to develop leaders and advance technology that improves the human condition. Across campus, Black students, faculty, and staff are excelling in research, teaching, entrepreneurship, athletics, and many other areas. Their stories and voices remind us of the importance of diversity and inclusion at the Institute that began 60 years ago with the matriculation of Georgia Tech's first Black students. Through courage, conviction, vision, and leadership, Black Yellow Jackets are a vital part of our future at Georgia Tech and throughout the world.

The master’s gown has longer, closed sleeves. The doctoral robe usually is the most elaborate; it is made of velvet, has three stripes on the arms, and includes a hood.
