Leadership for the Public Good

At Georgia College, our students are educated in the classical tradition of leadership for the public good. Beyond simply teaching students how to be successful in business or in their professions, for us, leadership means more. 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.

Our Mission

Georgia College’s Office of Leadership Programs provides teaching, research, and public service related to leadership, citizenship, democracy, and public affairs. With the support of a distinguished faculty and practitioners, we educate the next generation of Georgia’s leaders for the public good. Our programs bring together scholars and students, as well as business leaders, non-profit executives, journalists, and public officials, and offer a trusted forum on citizen-leadership and pressing issues of the day.

Our Vision

We envision programs and an institute of national preeminence on the basis of our scholarship, teaching, and public service. 


Our Competitive Advantage

The Georgia College student experience is distinguished by our multidisciplinary approaches to leadership learning, based in the arts and letters. Georgia College provides rich opportunities for mentorship, both formal and informal, as students learn to be leaders for the public good.

At Georgia College, leadership means more.

Leadership is needed in all sectors of society. Leadership does not depend on your major; we need teachers, nurses, entrepreneurs, scientists, public servants, non-profit directors, and many other professionals capable of effectively working with others to create positive change. See how our students, faculty, and alumni are providing leadership for the public good.
