The President’s Vision Statement
In its Vision 2029, GMC will be a nationally recognized leader providing a character-based higher education, improving students’ personal well-being and giving hope for a brighter future. The vision is achieved by being accessible to any student desiring a character-based college-level education, being the best two-year college in the state of Georgia and among the top five in the nation, being nationally recognized as a “best value” college, being recognized as a military-friendly school, being nationally recognized in the top ten fastest-growing community colleges, being nationally recognized as a leader in the innovation and delivery of individual learning support services, being nationally recognized as a leader in the innovation of programs, and by increasing scholarship endowments to make education affordable.
Our Mission is to produce educated citizens and contributing members of society in an environment conducive to the development of the intellect and character of its students, regardless of location or method of delivery. College students are offered a liberal arts-based, a two-year undergraduate curriculum designed to support student attainment of an associate degree and prepare students for transfer to four-year colleges and universities. Students with an associate of applied science degree are offered a curriculum designed to support student attainment of a Bachelor of Applied Science degree. For selected college students who enroll in the Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC), and preparatory school students in the Junior ROTC program, GMC includes a military training and education component.
Our programs are guided by its strategic initiatives, otherwise known as “The Four Big Ideas”:
• Contribute to student success
• Grow enrollments
• Think and act as one institution
• Invest in the future
