Ask anyone at Gettysburg College, and they'll tell you that this campus is home to some of the most engaged students, and many of them are influential leaders among their classmates.
Established in a ceremony this past fall with a gift from Bob Garthwait, Jr. ‘82, the Garthwait Leadership Center (GLC) has proven to be an immediate success, largely due to the hard work by the GLC's student leadership mentors.
GLC director Andy Hughes recently talked a bit about the GLC's mission, what students can expect to find at the GLC, and how GLC resources will shape a new generation of leaders at the College.
The GLC, through collaborative partnerships, helps students and alumni to develop leadership skills through a set of intellectual and experiential opportunities. Students and alumni use these opportunities to identify and reflect on their passions, and learn how to apply leadership skills ethically to make a positive impact.
Founded in 1832, Gettysburg College is a highly selective four-year residential college of liberal arts and sciences with a strong academic tradition that includes Rhodes Scholars, a Nobel laureate and other distinguished scholars among its alumni. The college enrolls 2,600 undergraduate students and is located on a 200-acre campus adjacent to the Gettysburg National Military Park in Pennsylvania.
