One of the primary goals of GMC is to graduate students with a solid understanding of contemporary moral principles and values. The classroom experience at GMC endeavors to:
- Encourage students to study, discuss, and think about ethical issues they will encounter.
- Equip students with the tools to think through ethical issues in a critical and responsible way.
- Create an environment in which students practice “civil” discourse in the presence of differing views.
- Develop sensitivity in our students to the suffering of others and an inclination to help those in need.
- Improve life in our classrooms, campuses, and communities.
Intellect & Character
Character Education is a core part of the GMC academic program. In the short time students are enrolled, GMC strives to ensure that they are better prepared to meet future ethical challenges and to be leaders and participating citizens in their communities.
The development of student intellect is achieved through accredited academic programs leading to an associate’s degree in the junior college and a solid foundation for continued education at a four year institution.
Character development at GMC is tied to a philosophy of "Ethics across the curriculum." which calls for implementing an institution-wide environment that stresses the holistic development of students’ moral and ethical characters.
