Georgia Gwinnett College was founded 10 years ago as a new model for higher education.  Inspired by a bold vision of transforming higher education, GGC’s leaders discarded traditional practices in favor of strategies that support student success.

The result is a dynamic learning community uniquely dedicated to giving each student every opportunity to turn dreams into reality. Faculty mentorship and student engagement are the hallmarks of a GGC education. As an access institution, Georgia Gwinnett serves all students, no matter the level of academic preparation, learning style, work schedule or financial barriers.

GGC’s innovative approach led some to call it “an experiment.” Its performance over the last 10 years has proven that the experiment works, as evident in many success measures – however, the GGC difference is best expressed through the personal stories of its students, faculty and staff.
