Global engagement is essential to Georgia Tech's aspirations to define the technological research university of the 21st century.
We must be recognized for graduating students who are good global citizens, who will be leaders capable of collaborating across geopolitical, cultural, and linguistic boundaries as they design solutions for the challenges of this century.
Support for scholarships, endowed chairs and professorships, and program enrichment will enable Georgia Tech to expand its global footprint.
With your support, we can enhance these areas:
