The Office of Inclusive Excellence, in partnership with the Baldwin County School District, will host "Teens Are Talking" Monday, February 26 at the Baldwin High School Fine Arts Theatre at 6 p.m. This forum will address topics and concerns local teens have identified as critical to their well-being, as well as the well-being of Milledgeville. The purpose of the forum is to encourage our youth to have a voice in their community and provide a platform where adults listen to their views. Ultimately, the goal is for everyone to come together and to initiate change for a brighter Milledgeville. For additional information, contact the Office of Inclusive Excellence at 478-445-4233.

Information Technology was made aware of some specific concerns and has adjusted the maintenance time frame to later in the evening. System Administration will begin bringing systems down at 10 pm: Banner, Degreeworks, Front Page, GCSignatures, IR Database, Main File Shares, R25, Starrez, and WWW. This work will affect all network connectivity including access to internal services, the Internet, and the VoIP phone system. During this maintenance period, there will be intermittent access to the network; users should expect a loss of network throughout this maintenance window. This work will have some impact on the Residential Network for services which use resources from the campus network.

We want to assure the campus our goal is to provide advanced notice and to perform repairs during our early morning maintenance time frame to minimize disruptions. The failure of the hardware in the Library Machine Room is a critical part of our redundant network. We regret the inconveniences the interruption of network services will cause and appreciate your understanding. An update will be posted on Unify when this work is complete.

If you experience any issues after this maintenance, please contact the Serve Help Desk ServeHelp Desk at 445-7378.

The LGBTQ+ Center is excited to announce the relaunch of the GC Safe Space Program!

Safe Space training aims to raise awareness of LGBTQ+ identities; equip participants with knowledge of LGBTQ+ language and concepts; and teach participants how to effectively support LGBTQ+ individuals and communities.

Members of the GC community who are Safe Space trained are committed to being welcoming and supportive of LGBTQ+ people and their allies. Participants who complete the training receive a Safe Space card to be displayed that identifies them as an LGBTQ+-affirming individual on campus.

We currently have 3 trainings planned for the Spring semester: March 2 (2-5 p.m.), March 22 (9 a.m. - noon), and April 23 (6-9 p.m.). Participants can register online to attend a training at www.tinyurl.com/GCSafeSpaceS18. Attendance will be capped at 15 participants for each session.

Additionally, if you have a group of 8 people or larger that would all like to go through a Safe Space training, we can work with you to schedule a training specifically for your group or organization.

Please note: Safe Space training can not be mandated for any individual, group, department, or organization. If you are seeking a training around LGBTQ+ identities, please contact the LGBTQ+ Center coordinator to discuss your specific needs.
