As described in its mission statement, GRU is a “student-centered comprehensive research university and academic health center with a wide range of programs from learning assistance through postdoctoral studies.”

GSU’s athletic teams, nicknamed the Jaguars, compete on the NCAA II division level as members of the Peach Belt Conference in sports including basketball, baseball, softball, men’s and women’s cross country, men’s and women’s tennis and volley ball. The university’s golf teams compete on the NCAA I level, with the men winning their first national title in 2010.
