History of the Journal
The inaugural issue of The Tower, the premiere interdisciplinary research journal for undergraduates at the Georgia Institute of Technology, was released in Fall 2008. The Tower was founded on the principles of:
- Showcasing undergraduate achievements in research,
- Inspiring academic inquiry, and
- Promoting Georgia Tech’s commitment to undergraduate research endeavors
In recent years the reach of the journal has extended onto the national stage. In the summer of 2013, The Tower entered a formal article exchange partnership with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology Undergraduate Research Journal (MURJ). The goal of the partnership is to continue to foster undergraduate scholarship in research and allow for further collaboration between Georgia Tech and MIT.
