We are excited to announce the approval of GSU’s Cooperative Education Program (Co-Op) which will kick off this fall with students from the Computer Science and Computer Information Systems degree programs.
Cooperative education is a full-time, paid, rotational, field based experience that is a critical component of a student’s academic program for which they receive credit. Students will have the opportunity to apply skills learned in the classroom to related work experiences, giving them a competitive edge once they enter the workforce on a full time basis.
Georgia State University prides itself in cultivating exceptional leaders who are equipped with the knowledge and skills to take on major roles within top tier organizations and companies world-wide.

Sure, you’ll get a great workout, enjoy a game of racquetball, and possibly make time for a good swim. But that’s not all Georgia State University’s Recreational Services has to offer. An internship site for the Nutrition department and employer to six graduate students from Exercise and Nutrition, Recreational Services continues to make active strides toward achieving the key goals of the university’s strategic plan.
One of the overarching goals of the strategic plan is to increase student learning and engagement, and under the direction of the Center for Instructional Innovation (CII), a group of faculty members known as the ” Digital Champions” came together to get specialized training and discover and promote the use of innovative research and teaching technologies.
In the spring of 2012, the Office of the Provost and the Office of the Vice President for Research and Economic Development announced a new internal grant program designed to provide seed funds for collaborations that will support Goal 4 of the strategic plan to promote a better understanding of the complex challenges of cities and developing effective solutions.

The Council for the Progress of Cities was established to further engage the university in local and global issues that influence our community and to develop the active agenda of the Cities Initiative. This council recently designed working groups to help actualize Georgia State University’s goal to become an expert in city related issues and resolutions.
