Faculty and staff with Georgia Tech-Lorraine and the Office of International Education have been working through the night to confirm that students studying and travelling in and around the city of Nice, France, are uninjured in the wake of the country’s latest terrorist attack. Students known to be in the immediate vicinity of the event have reported they were unharmed.

The process is ongoing, and Georgia Tech is focused on locating students who are participating in its official programs. Information on students, staff, or faculty who may be on personal travel is not available.

What is known:

  • All students participating in the France summer study abroad (LBAT) are safe;
  • All students participating in the BEST – Lyon program are confirmed safe;
  • All students in the Global Internship Program are safe;
  • All students at Georgia Tech-Lorraine are confirmed safe; and
  • All students participating in exchange programs are confirmed safe.

Georgia Tech-Lorraine used its emergency notification procedure, similar to GTENS, encouraging its students to take precaution and requesting they check in with local administration. The Lorraine campus is more than 300 miles from Nice.

The France LBAT program has cancelled its activities for today.
