The Social Action Alliance (SAA) at Georgia State aims to inspire and prepare the next generation of collaborators to identify wicked social problems, work across sectors and disciplines and impact the world with innovative solutions. Future journalists, lawyers, artists, engineers – all are welcome to begin discovering and designing how to align their personal motivations, skillsets and career goals to do good.
Georgia State is in the heart of Atlanta, which has long been the cornerstone of change and the home of social justice giants. In continuing the legacy of one of those inspiring trailblazers, Ambassador Andrew Young, this program is inclusive, open to all undergraduate disciplines across our six campuses and 12 schools and colleges. With social empathy at its core, practice-based, multidisciplinary frameworks will guide student coursework, internships and co-curricular activities, leading to a certificate in Collective Social Action.
The SAA calls on all interested undergraduates to ACT! and make the world better for those who come after them.
