Dialogue member Ángel Cabrera has been named President of the Georgia Institute of Technology. He will assume the position before September 15, 2019.
“I am thrilled to serve as Georgia Tech’s new president,” Cabrera said. “My academic career was shaped here as was my personal life. My wife and I met in graduate school at Tech and our son Alex just finished his undergraduate here this year. In many ways, this is a wonderful homecoming for us. As a member of the Georgia Tech Advisory Board for about a decade, I have witnessed Georgia Tech’s emergence as one of the leading technological universities in the world and admired its role in making Atlanta a thriving hub of innovation. It is an absolute privilege to be asked to lead this remarkable institution into its next chapter.”
Cabrera has served as president of George Mason University (GMU), a top-tier research institution and the largest public university in Virginia, since 2012.
Cabrera is a member of the Inter-American Dialogue.
