Georgia Tech Non-profit Organization
Bridged the gap between Georgia Tech and a local non profit community organization
Educational institutions are often seen as enclosed in their own walls and not actively engaged in their community. We are breaking down those barriers by acknowledging that the academic institution has just as much to gain from the interacting with the community as the community has to gain from involving the institution. We are showing how it is possible to conduct valid research, create meaningful real-world based course work, employ researchers, faculty, and interns while also serving our community.
