Damn the Torpedoes

Did parts of the institution let them do it?Tech once had a school of commerce. IIRC, the BOR took that away from Tech and created Georgia State. Tech had a satellite campus with an Engineering Technology school. The BOR took that away and created Southern Tech. Almost every time Tech has tried to expand its offerings, the BOR had other plans.
I think @gtphd has a complete historical rundown of how the BOR has treated Tech ever since their creation of “a school for blacksmiths” in the suburbs of post war Atlanta.
Back about 5-6 years ago when lurking on the site there were contentions that hosted ideas akin to “but it will devalue my degree” and the like. Totally reasonable as a non alumni with no stake. I haven’t heard that argument on this board in a long time.
