Our Mission

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.

At Georgia College, leadership means more.
