Training and Professional Development


Training and Professional Development  is committed to providing the Georgia College community an opportunity for continued improvement and development through compliance training and new employee orientation in addition to professional development and enrichment opportunities.


Training and Professional Development is housed within the Office of Human Resources in the Division of Finance and Administration of Georgia College. The program is led by the Professional Development and Training Specialist with the support of the Chief Human Resource Officer and the Office of Human Resources support staff.

We have the responsibility of being among the first to welcome new employees to the Georgia College family. We review the history and background of the university, campus and USG policies, and helpful tips for adjusting to Georgia College and the Milledgeville way of life. All Georgia College employees must complete a New Employee Orientation at the time of hire. Once a new employee has submitted a signed offer letter, the orientation and onboarding process begins. For more information, contact Employment Services and visit the New Employee Orientation page of

We ensure that all employees of Georgia College complete required training for policy, ethics, safety, loss prevention, and information security both at the time of hire and through refresher courses as needed. Our goal is to provide each employee the tools and resources they need to be successful.
