VSU, CGTC sign Pathways Program Agreement

MACON — Central Georgia Technical College (CGTC) and Valdosta State University (VSU) signed a Pathways Program agreement on Tuesday during a ceremony at CGTC’s Macon campus. Through the agreement, CGTC students who successfully earn an Associate of Applied Science or Associate of Applied Technology degree are eligible to work toward a Bachelor of Applied Science in human capital performance or Bachelor of Science in organizational leadership at VSU.

“This new articulation agreement with Valdosta State University will greatly benefit our students,” said Dr. Ivan H. Allen, president of CGTC. “At CGTC, our primary focus is our students and how we can assist them with finding success in the workforce in order to support their families and the local economy as a tax payer. We are maintaining this focus by working to offer our students greater opportunities to advance their education after graduation. We are pleased to have VSU as a partner in this process.”

The Pathways Program centers on the priorities of Complete College Georgia (CCG), an initiative developed to increase the number of Georgians earning a college degree. In 2012, institutions in both the Technical College System of Georgia (TCSG) and the University System of Georgia (USG submitted plans to achieve the ambitious goal of adding more than 250,000 postsecondary graduates to Georgia’s workforce by 2020.

“Valdosta State is pleased to develop a partnership with Central Georgia Technical College and look forward to expanding the opportunity for more students to complete their college degree,” said VSU President William J. McKinney. “This partnership represents an important piece of Valdosta State’s commitment to Gov. Nathan Deal’s Complete College Georgia initiative. It is these types of collaborative relationships that will assist more students in earning the credentials they desire, and helping to create a more highly educated and prepared workforce throughout Georgia.”

Central Georgia Technical College offers more than 200 degree, diploma and certificate options that can be completed in two years or less. Courses are offered at three campuses, Warner Robins, Macon, and Milledgeville, and four centers throughout the 11-county service area.
