Mission

The mission of the Intercollegiate Athletics Program at Young Harris College is to contribute positively to the personal development of students by providing opportunities for participation in sports on a highly competitive level. Along with completing its mission, the Athletic Department and staff are committed to assisting all student-athletes and especially those who possess a strong athletic ability in moving on to a four-year college where they may continue to compete in their sport.

The Intercollegiate Athletics Program contributes to the vitality of campus life by providing entertaining, highly competitive sporting events for the campus and community at large. In this sense, it serves as one of the principle centers for campus life because it contributes to the development of campus identity and community. Athletics are an appropriate and important component of the Young Harris College experience because they embody many of the intrinsic values and goals of education at our college, in particular, the striving to achieve excellence in all manifestations of human life and the enrichment of the human spirit.

The mission of the Intercollegiate Athletics Program is inextricably tied to the mission of the College. Therefore, as Young Harris College continues to be one of the best private colleges in the nation and the finest in the Southeast, the Intercollegiate Athletics Program similarly aspires to become one of the best athletic programs among comparable colleges in the region and nation.
