GC Leadership Programs

The Georgia College Leadership Programs are open to students from all disciplines.

Emerging Leaders
In Emerging Leaders, GC freshmen clarify values, explore interests, develop leadership skills, learn about campus leadership opportunities, and build relationships with others who are interested in making a difference at the university and in the community.

Leadership Certificate Program
In the LCP, GC students learn about the principles and practices of effective leadership through the study of leadership topics and models, the acquisition of hands-on leadership experience, and the process of intentional personal reflection.

Georgia Education Mentorship (GEM) 
In GEM, GC students are mentored by business and non-profit leaders - many of whom are members of the Georgia Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors.  Students also take part in leadership and professional development opportunities offered throughout the year.

Omicron Delta Kappa (ODK)  
ODK, the National Leadership Honor Society, recognizes GC students, faculty, staff, alumni and friend for leadership and service in extracurricular activities - and encourages the development of general campus citizenship.

Inspire! Student Leadership Forum
The Inspire! series invites business and nonprofit leaders to share leadership lessons with GC students.  Students gain insight into effective leadership and are challenged to fulfill their leadership potential.

Bobcats Against Hunger
Each year the GC student organization Bobcats Against Hunger partners with the Baldwin County School System and the nonprofit organization Feeding Children Everywhere to host a hunger project to raise $12,500+ and package 50,000+ meals for kids and families in the community.
