Return to college campaign

Written by  Monday, 04 August 2014 09:49

  Georgia Governor Nathan Deal, University System of Georgia (USG) Chancellor Hank Huckaby and Technical College System of Georgia (TCSG) Commissioner Ron Jackson announced Georgia’s “Go Back. Move Ahead.” campaign.  The campaign will encourage many of the more than one million Georgians who have completed some college to return and finish their degrees.

  Molly Bickerton, a graduate of Ogeechee Technical College, and graduate representative of the Technical College System of Georgia was on hand for the announcement.  Bickerton was the 2008 Georgia Occupational Award of Leadership winner at Ogeechee Tech and for TCSG. 

 

  “Go Back. Move Ahead.” is a part of Gov. Deal’s “Complete College Georgia” initiative, which launched in 2011.  It is projected that by 2020, more than 60 percent of jobs in Georgia will require a college certificate or degree.  Presently, however, only 42 percent of the state’s young adults have earned a college credential — creating a need for an additional 250,000 graduates.

 

  The initiative will offer Georgians a simpler enrollment process, more flexible ways to transfer earned college credits, additional course schedule options and a personal academic advisor. Options for returning to college in Georgia include enrolling on campus, taking classes at a satellite location or using the online options available at many of Georgia’s public institutions.
