The Georgia Consortium for International Studies (GCIS) Inc.

The Georgia Consortium for International Studies (GCIS) Inc. is a collaborative partnership of seventeen (17) Georgia institutions of higher education aimed at promoting intercultural understanding and fostering faculty international development. The Consortium was founded in 1968 and incorporated in 1980, and has operated continuously since that time. In recent years the GCIS has sought to identify areas in international education that need strengthening in Georgia, and to devise programs or activities to address those needs.
