“Indiana Wesleyan University is excited about partnering with Albany Technical College to help create a stronger workforce for adult students in Southwest Georgia. IWU’s online course platform will allow ATC graduates the opportunity to continue working to support their families, while confidently pursuing their education. The future is bright for ATC alumni and IWU is privileged to enter this esteemed agreement in effort to produce world changers,” said Kelli Adams, Corporate Representative at Indiana Wesleyan University.

The Pathways Program centers on the priorities of Complete College Georgia (CCG), an initiative developed to increase the number of Georgians earning a college degree. In 2012, institutions in both the University System of Georgia (USG) and the Technical College System of Georgia (TCSG) submitted plans to achieve the ambitious goal of adding more than 250,000 postsecondary graduates to Georgia’s workforce by 2020.
