Designing a Course with the SDGs
Georgia Tech aims to produce graduates who have the knowledge, skills, and commitment to making a positive difference in their communities, their organizations, and the world. To achieve this mission, the Institute is expanding sustainability education to ensure all students are equipped to advance sustainability and the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in their chosen professions. Learn more about the work of CTL, the Center for Serve-Learn-Sustain, and other partners to bring community-engaged sustainability and the SDGs into Georgia Tech courses through this brief history.
