The Office of Development is charged with securing private support for Georgia Tech. Gifts from individuals, corporations, and foundations often make it possible for Georgia Tech to participate in new initiatives, to offer students or faculty exciting opportunities for broader educational and research experience, and in short, take us "from good to great" on many levels.
Nowhere is private support more valuable than in the expansion of Tech's activities into the international arena, where no state funds are used. Because costs in many of these areas are much higher than in the U.S., funds are needed to supplement living and travel expenses for students and faculty.
We are also in need of support for international exchanges, professional conferences, collaboration opportunities, and other activities designed to provide the Tech community with the enrichment provided by living, working, and studying in countries other than our own.
Opportunities exist to provide support for specific disciplines or in specific countries, and appropriate naming opportunities are available.
