Georgia State University’s location in the heart of Atlanta allows our faculty and students to play a vital role in the social, cultural and economic life of the city. The College of Arts and Sciences works with local communities on research, service and teaching projects that benefit both the university and the city.

Our lectures, performances and exhibitions—often free and open to the public—are playing a major role in the cultural resurgence of downtown neighborhoods. Our CollabTech facilities offer new companies both workspace and access to state-of-the art equipment, boosting and diversifying Georgia’s economy.
