History, Mission, Vision, and Values

History

Central Georgia Technical College (CGTC) was officially established to conduct business by the State Board of the Technical College System of Georgia during its September 2012 meeting when the Board approved the consolidation of *Middle Georgia Technical College (est.1973), Warner Robins, GA and *Central Georgia Technical College (est. 1962), Macon, GA. The College Leadership then requested and received approval from its regional accrediting agency, the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC) Board of Trustees during its June 2013 meeting to continue as an accredited institution with Level I status, granting associate degrees. The consolidated College officially began doing business as Central Georgia Technical College July 1, 2013. A Mission statement for the consolidated College was approved by the State Board of the Technical College System of Georgia during its April 2013 meeting and was distributed throughout the College community.

The primary campus for CGTC is located at 80 Cohen Walker Drive, Warner Robins, GA 31088. The College services eleven counties in Georgia as listed here: Baldwin, Bibb, Crawford, Dooly, Houston, Jones, Monroe, Peach, Pulaski, Putnam, and Twiggs. The College has campuses located in Milledgeville (Baldwin), Macon (Bibb), and Warner Robins (Houston).
