About Us

Georgia Tech’s motto is “Progress and Service” – and we are upping the ante through Serve-Learn-Sustain, a campus-wide academic initiative working with all six colleges to offer courses and programs connecting sustainability and community engagement with real-world partners and projects.

The result? Georgia Tech graduates are using their disciplinary expertise related to science and technology to help “create sustainable communities” where humans and nature flourish, now and in the future, in Georgia, the U.S., and around the globe.
