Does the institution make cultural competence trainings and activities available to all students?:

A brief description of the cultural competence trainings and activities:
Georgia Tech offers more than 80 exchange programs and 30 group faculty-led programs, sending 1200+ students abroad each year. Today's students understand that international study, research, and work experience will better prepare them for a rewarding life and career. Thus, Georgia Tech's International Plan offers a unique program giving them the professional edge they need in our increasingly competitive world. The International Plan is a challenging four-year program that works in tandem with an undergraduate's academic curriculum to produce globally competent citizens. The program utilizes existing study, work, and research abroad opportunities available through the Office of International Education and the Division of Professional Practice to help students fulfill their requirements. Successful completion of the program results in a special "International Plan" designation on the Georgia Tech degree and transcript.
