Leadership for the Public Good

Georgia College & State University's Leadership Clinics offer team-based analysis and problem-solving for organizations in our community and across Georgia. Through our Leadership Clinics, students work under the supervision of a faculty mentor to complete a project for a partner agency. Students work with the partner agency to gather data and to identify a central question to answer; they draft a scope of work and lay out of a timeline for execution and implementation.
