International and American students and scholars can engage in a variety of enriching opportunities through the International Center. Faculty actively involve them in the International Center's work with governments around the world. The participation of students and scholars helps develop a new generation of leaders with a global outlook and cultural insights.
Visiting scholars come to the International Center to conduct research, connect with public officials and draw on the resources of the Institute of Government and the University of Georgia (UGA). In turn, these scholars contribute to and enrich the International Center's outreach programs by contributing their knowledge and insights. Many scholars are simultaneously enrolled in UGA graduate programs.
A number of Institute of Government programs and specializations can contribute to assistance and research projects through the International Center, including:
economic and fiscal policy analysis
Geographic Information Systems (GIS) technology
human resource management
rural economic development
