The Office of Leadership Programs maintains institution-wide responsibility for management, coordination, and development of all Georgia College leadership programs and initiatives.

Georgia College and State University 2023

Georgia College is Georgia’s designated public liberal arts institution. As a residential institution, home to a largely traditional age college student, GCSU aims to offer students highly experiential and high-impact experiences. GCSU is still committed to its student success/Momentum Year plan, GC Journeys, and was lucky to experience a 24.8% increase in students participating in these experiences—largely explained by the decrease in Covid 19 cases and the return to face-to-face experiences.
