Message Regarding Derek Chauvin Verdict

I join many in our community in feeling a great sense of relief and hope in the announcement that Derek Chauvin was found guilty on all counts for the murder of George Floyd. I am grateful for jury members who upheld the integrity of our judicial system by standing for justice, and I look forward to healing that may come from this decision.

CGCC Response to Anti-Asian & Pacific Islander Racism and Violence

Recently, our nation experienced another horrible tragedy in the murders of eight people at three different Asian-owned businesses in Atlanta. Unfortunately, we have seen escalating violence directed towards those of Asian and Pacific Islander heritage across our country this past year during the COVID pandemic, and these acts remind us of the unjust history many Asian American and Pacific Islander communities continue to experience. I'm very sorry for this late message and I want to express our sadness and solidarity with the families of the victims and our Asian American communities.

Reach your educational goals with learning community courses

A learning community pairs courses into one integrated learning package for student success - a learning community. A smaller group of students, say up to 25, take these multiple classes together as a team, but with different instructors for each course. Assignments in the courses are integrated, showing how what you learn in one class, has application and meaning in another course. This helps students feel more connected to the school as well as gaining deeper understanding of the topics.
