Four finalists have been chosen in the search for the next vice provost for International Initiatives. The search follows the announcement by Yves Berthelot, the current vice provost for International Initiatives, that he will be retiring June 30 after 36 years of service to Georgia Tech.

As part of the final selection process, each candidate will present at an hour-long open seminar on the theme “Connecting Globally: Achieving Georgia Tech’s International Vision.” Candidate seminars are open to all students, faculty, and staff. Those wishing to attend any of the seminars can do so virtually here, safely attend in person, or watch a post-event video.
