Meet Nisha Botchwey, Humphrey School's New Dean

March 16, 2022

Nisha Botchwey joined the Humphrey School of Public Affairs as its new dean in January 2022. Previously, she was a faculty member and administrator at Georgia Tech for nearly a decade, and was director of the Georgia Tech Healthy Places Lab.

A native of Jamaica, Botchwey is the first woman of color and immigrant to lead the School. 

"There’s a saying that's appropriate for this time," Botchwey says. “'If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.' We have a far way to go, and together is the way."

As the Humphrey School recognizes the contributions of influential women in its history during March, Women’s History Month, Dean Botchwey reflects on her journey to this leadership role.
