President’s Welcome


A Word from Dr. Joseph R. Marbach

Welcome to Georgian Court University, where you will experience a life-changing Catholic education on a stunningly beautiful campus. At GCU, you’ll find a comprehensive university that provides an education steeped in the liberal arts tradition and is inspired by the values of integrity, respect, service, justice, and compassion as set forth by our sponsors, the Sisters of Mercy.

As you get to know us, you may hear us talk about the ways GCU transforms lives, and how those who come to Georgian Court looking for the right major actually leave with so much more: passion, a clear sense of purpose, and the capacity to change the world—for the better.

We witness this transformation all the time, in the classroom and beyond. Our integrated academic and student life approach, which includes joint faculty-student research, small classes, mentoring, and personalized advising, contribute to the dramatic changes students experience and the overall value of a Georgian Court education.

In short, GCU faculty and staff enable you to find your calling and pursue your passion.

In recent years, Money® named us #25 among the Top 50 Colleges That Add the Most Value, an honor that reflects the dedication of our faculty, the success of students, and the impact of our caring alumni who are determined to make a difference. We have seen similar accolades from U.S. News & World Report, Washington Monthly, Colleges of Distinction and others.

We are equally proud of the many ways that GCU expands possibility, for students and for the communities touched by Georgian Court graduates.

From the history major spending her summer in Ghana fighting child trafficking to the clinical mental health counselor focused on breakthrough techniques in neuroscience, Georgian Court inspires us to take action.

We invite you to act now, to learn more about Georgian Court, and come to understand how you, too, can transform lives and change our world.
