Our Approach to Partnerships:

SLS is an experiential learning program, and partnerships are key to all of our work. SLS collaborates with diverse partners - from communities, nonprofits, government, academia, and business  – on key sustainability challenges. We focus especially on building long-term relationships with partners in Atlanta and Georgia. We also collaborate with other units on-campus working to create a sustainable Georgia Tech. We prioritize partnerships that will advance work related to six priority issues: Community Health, Equitable & Sustainable Development, Climate Change & Energy, Social Innovation, Green Infrastructure, and the U.N. SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals). Through these partnerships, GT students, faculty, and staff help advance shared visions for change - and students learn to use the knowledge and skills they are acquiring at GT to help “create sustainable communities.”


Our Partners:

We have too many partners to list all of them - but here is a list of some of the partners we work with most, through our Partnership Advisory Council,  Signature Programs, course partnerships, and ongoing projects.
