Georgia Tech's Writing and Communication Program (WCP) has been selected as the Institute's 2020 Unit Diversity Champion Award Winner. 

Each year, the Georgia Tech Institute Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion presents one of its Diversity Champion Awards to a unit on campus that best exemplifies IDEI’s mission to “advancing a culture of inclusive excellence.” This award acknowledges the overall program’s work over the past three years. The 2020 award criteria focused on accessibility as a key component to promoting inclusion. WCP’s recent faculty, pedagogy, curriculum, materials, scholarship, outreach, and commitment to accessibility, excellence, diversity, equity, and inclusion contributed to its being selected as the 2020 Unit Diversity Champion Award.

Thanks to IDEI for this honor. Thanks as well to former director Rebecca E. Burnett, current director Melissa Ianetta, and the over 40 WCP faculty members whose collective efforts in designing and implementing WCP’s WOVEN framework, which highlights written, oral, visual, electronic, and nonverbal communication, have led to the program’s overall success.
