Team Leaders

What are Team Leaders?

Team Leaders foster a support network for incoming Georgia Tech students by building relationships with students in GT 1000 & GT 2000 classes, introducing them to Georgia Tech resources, and helping familiarize them with campus culture. Team Leaders serve as resources to GT 1000 and GT 2000 instructors by communicating student needs, assisting in classroom presentations, and building a classroom community. 

Team Leader applications are closed.
