AT GEORGIA COLLEGE, 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.
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.
