Extended University Division

The Extended University Division of Georgia College provides many services to GC students, primarily through the Department of Continuing Education, the Office of Afterschool Achievement, Communities In Schools Milledgeville-Baldwin County, the Department of Public Services, Academic Outreach and the Old Governor’s Mansion. Afterschool Achievement and Communities In Schools both offer a number of opportunities for GC students to serve as paid tutors or volunteers in programs that serve Baldwin County school children. Continuing Education provides a number of summer employment opportunities to students. The Department of Public Services supervises the Centennial Center, outdoor pool, and tennis courts, as well as Russell Auditorium, Chappell Hall, Miller Dance Studio, and several other facilities used by students. Public Services is also responsible for nonacademic facility reservations for the campus, and can assist student groups in finding meeting space. The Old Governor's Mansion - a historic house museum - provides free tours of the Mansion to students.

Since 1968, Academic Outreach (AO) has provided free positive educational experiences for Pre-K through 12th grade students in Baldwin and surrounding counties. This is accomplished through hands-on activities and non-traditional delivery systems at schools, environmental centers and GC that are facilitated by GC students from a variety of majors. Many of its programs are science or environmental based, but they also range in programming from history and team building to art and music. As members of the Community Action Team for Service (CATS), GC students gain valuable leadership and group management skills in addition to practical application of classroom studies. Hours completed with AO can be added to GC students' experiential transcripts through service or volunteer hours.
