The Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport provides ready global access. Dozens of countries maintain consular, trade or chamber of commerce offices in Atlanta.

The university is an active citizen in the community, which naturally develops connections and opportunities for Emory students, faculty and staff to explore.
