A Letter from President Caldwell on Coronavirus

Dear GMC students, parents, faculty, and staff,

These are unprecedented times and we will see the ramifications long after the pandemic is over. Although there is much uncertainty, one thing has not changed and that is the commitment of Georgia Military College to the education and safety of our students attending our Prep School, Junior College, and Corps of Cadets; as well as the safety and well-being of faculty and staff at all 14 GMC Junior College campuses.

In accordance with Governor Kemp’s executive order, as well as other state and national guidelines, all GMC campuses are closed to students and we have implemented social distancing measures. All of our Students and cadets have transitioned to remote learning and online courses until March 31. Faculty and staff members will be telecommuting during this time and readily available to students on a remote basis.

We will continue to have key and essential personnel available on GMC campuses to ensure college operations are maintained as needed and for public safety. Our #1 Mission right now is to Ensure the Success of our Students and minimize to the best of our abilities the disruption to their education.

Throughout the coming days and weeks, we will continuously reassess and adjust our procedures for all GMC campuses as required and appropriate. GMC leadership has committed to communicating on a regular basis with our students. Our intent next week, if sufficient information is made available, is to decide how to move forward after March 31. We will announce any new measures and protocols in a timely manner.

Thank you for your continued understanding and patience as we all navigate through these extraordinary times for our GMC Family, surrounding communities, and beyond.

William B. Caldwell, IV
Lieutenant General, U.S. Army (Ret.)
President
Georgia Military College
