Faculty Partnerships

Atlanta Global Partnerships collaborates with a coalition of Atlanta universities along with the Atlanta Global Studies Center to offer multi-institutional and multi-disciplinary grants to build and strengthen collaborative networks of scholars and practitioners supporting global research and education initiatives in greater Atlanta.

Through this engagement, Emory University is a member of the Atlanta Global Research and Education Collaborative (AGREC), which seeks to build and strengthen collaborative nets of multi-institutional scholars and practitioners to support global research and education initiative in the Greater Atlanta region.  

The Atlanta Global Research and Education Collaborative (AGREC) invites scholars from any Atlanta institution or university and in any discipline to submit collaborative projects that address a need in our global and local communities.
