Leadership is about forging meaningful connections to our communities and world. It is a perspective, not a position. Good leadership requires us to speak out powerfully and passionately for a given cause and to marshal our resources to a given end. The intensive leadership education we provide at Georgia College helps our students identify what matters to them, how to make positive change in their communities and world, and how to serve as leaders for the public good. 

The Georgia College Leadership Academy is an eight-month program for first-year students. Whether you’re just beginning your leadership journey or already pursuing your passions, the Leadership Academy will equip you for leadership at Georgia College and beyond.

Choose a Path, or Forge Your Own

Our students take many paths through the Leadership Academy. With the support of our faculty, consultants, and leadership facilitators, Leadership Academy participants can choose a pathway—or design their own. 

Pathways are just that: possible paths to your leadership destination. Our pathways are designed to meet you where you are and provide more specialized opportunities to learn and practice your skills as a leader. Based on your personalized leadership profile and the goals you set for yourself, you can chart a course through the Leadership Academy with the support of similarly ambitious peers and specially equipped facilitators. Your faculty and facilitators will guide and support your journey, and the Leadership Academy will provide you the tools to be successful.
