CISTP brings unique Speakers and Views to GT Campus
GT Campus (March 30, 2010) —
Georgia Tech’s campus has recently seen a number of big named speakers. Between the famous comedians, Nobel Laureates and four-star generals, one question is bound to come up: who brings all of these big speakers to campus?
For many of these speakers, the answer is the Center for International Strategy, Technology and Policy (CISTP).
Angela Levin, CISTP’s Program Coordinator, described the Center as, “the research arm of the Sam Nunn School of International Affairs.”
According to Levin, CISTP sponsors a number of programs, from emerging and nano technologies, to political regional hotspots.
One of CISTP’s big programs is their lecture series, where they bring big names to campus to give talks on their area of expertise.
