Presidential Search

The Georgia Southern University Presidential Search and Screen Committee was charged by the Chancellor on Wednesday, Aug. 29 to undertake the search for our next President. The committee met with members of the Chancellor’s office, Board of Regents and the Witt/Kieffer search firm to discuss the responsibilities and goals of the committee, and the process for our search.
