Vocal on Gay Issues, Georgia Business School Dean Goes Beyond Classroom

Steve Salbu, dean of Georgia Institute of Technology's Scheller College of Business, says he is the only openly gay dean at a top U.S. business school. As a result, he feels a duty to speak out for openness and equality for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender students and professionals. Though Mr. Salbu is at a relatively small school—Scheller has just 71 students in the first-year class of its full-time M.B.A., 415 more in an evening version and 1,332 undergraduates—he hopes to expand his platform on LGBT issues. That has become more feasible since the Atlanta-based school cracked the top 25 on Bloomberg Businessweek's M.B.A. ranking in 2010.
