What We're About
Professor of History Bob Wilson says it this way, "Georgia College is an institution that nurtures leaders in an environment that encourages intellectual freedom and rigorous inquiry, and students have a passion for learning here."
Both faculty and staff contribute to the long-term success and make-up of Georgia College being the designated liberal arts university for the University System of Georgia. And that means everything from biology labs to making sure the grounds are kept, from quickly responding to needs in the residence halls to scheduling world-class lecturers that visit our campus.
Georgia College attracts some of the brightest students in and outside of Georgia, and our faculty and staff work to instill a community where their growth as scholars and leaders will be fostered and mentored as they prepare to face the rewards and challenges of a changing world.
Assistant Professor of Mathematics Janet Shiver says, "Georgia College offers the best in higher education," she says. "Our campus is large enough to offer a wide range of opportunities to our students, faculty and the community but small enough to offer that personal touch that is often lacking at larger institutions. Georgia College is where teaching the student is more important than teaching the course."
In short, Georgia College faculty and staff are about the work of connecting what matters.
