ATLANTA — As one of only four schools in the state of Georgia with an R1 designation from the Carnegie Foundation, Georgia State University is home to a highly active research community. Over the past year, that community has pushed to explore and answer critical questions in a wide range of subjects, from health and wellness to culture and community to issues that affect the places and planet where we live. That research has yielded new knowledge, new tools and new methods to navigate the most pressing global challenges.
