Student Action Teams


All Global Leadership students contribute to the LLC by collaborating on a Student Action Team of their choosing. Student Actions Teams will plan events of that team's focus for the entire GL community. Each Student Action Team will manage their own budget of $1000 per semester and will elect officers to oversee the group’s events and budget. The only exception is the GL Event Team, which will have a larger budget and will coordinate with GL staff to plan large scale monthly events for the entire GL community.

 

Culture and Holiday

The Culture and Holiday team supports cultural awareness, encourages diversity, and educates the GL community on US and international cultures and traditions. They will be responsible for discovering and celebrating cultural events related to art, religion, dance, music, theater, comedy, holiday traditions, and more on campus and in the Atlanta area. This team will also organize events, excursions, activities, and trips related to culture and tradition.  They will share and celebrate popular worldwide holidays with the community—utilizing the diverse backgrounds already present in our community.

GL Event Team

The Global Leadership Event team will play a crucial role in planning, organizing, and implementing large scale monthly events for the entire Global Leadership LLC. This student action team will work closely with the GL staff to execute successful community-wide events, such as planning the Spring Retreat, EOY event, and museum/sporting events in town among many fun excursions.

Global Cuisine

The Global Cuisine team is for the foodies of Global Leadership. This student action team will be responsible for highlighting international cuisine through food preparation in the community, visiting diverse restaurants and groceries, and attending area food festivals.  Whether planning an excursion to Buford Highway, exploring Atlanta’s local, sustainable food options at farmers’ markets, or getting involved with the Georgia Tech Urban Honey Bee Project, the Global Cuisine student action team will find delicious ways for GL students to tap into local and global cultures located in the Atlanta area.

My World 360° Virtual Reality

The VR team will create videos around Georgia Tech and Atlanta, documenting ways in which one or more of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals are being achieved or highlighting where they need more work. The films will be shown to campus during International Education Week in November and submitted in a monthly global student competition.

Sport and Health

The Sport and Health team will be responsible for organizing outings to various sporting events on campus and in Atlanta, as well as promoting wellness events and opportunities for the community.  This student action team will support those interested in actively playing sports, as well as those who like to watch and tailgate.  Whether playing pick-up soccer, signing GL up for competitive basketball in intramurals, or organizing weekly yoga, this will be an active group.  Students will also check out and promote opportunities to follow GT and Atlanta athletic events.

SDG Community Service

The SDG Community Service student action team will seek out opportunities to contribute to the 17 Global Goals on Georgia Tech’s campus and in the surrounding Atlanta community. This team will be responsible for organizing various community service projects throughout the year for the team and the entire GL community.  Perhaps they’ll sign GL up for Trees Atlanta, Habitat for Humanity, or the Humane Society.  Students could tutor local students or even help serve at a food bank before Thanksgiving.

SDG Educational Outreach

The SDG Educational Outreach student action team will look for opportunities to educate students, faculty, and staff at Georgia Tech, as well as individuals in the local community. This team could utilize “The World’s Largest Lesson” framework to teach others and spread awareness about the 17 Global Goals.  Check out more here:  http://worldslargestlesson.globalgoals.org/. Students can also explore other ways to raise awareness on campus and in the community.
