Georgia College is committed to the stewardship of its resources, including the campus physical environment. The Georgia College campus sustainability mission is to effectively and efficiently manage natural, physical and financial resources through social, environmental and economic responsibility and provide leadership and coordination of sustainability initiatives throughout the campus community with education, research and engagement. With greater awareness of the environmental challenges that affect us locally and globally, Georgia College has renewed its commitment to taking stock of its own environmental impact and exploring ways in which the university community can enhance the environmental of our campus.
