Georgia Southern University

Georgia Southern University, classified as a doctoral/research institution by the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching, is a member of the University System of Georgia. As the largest and most comprehensive research institution in southeast Georgia, the University is a residential campus of nearly 20,500 students representing 49 states and 86 nations. 

Accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges, Georgia Southern offers a comprehensive array of baccalaureate degrees and selected master's and doctoral programs through eight colleges: Business Administration, Education, Engineering and Information Technology, Health and Human Sciences, Liberal Arts and Social Sciences, Public Health, Science and Mathematics and Graduate Studies. With an emphasis on academic distinction, excellent teaching, research and student success, Georgia Southern offers both undergraduate and graduate students an attractive campus environment that encourages learning, discovery and personal growth.

Founded in 1906, Georgia Southern is one of the most beautiful campuses in the state. Comprising more than 900 acres, the University grounds are an arboretum-like treasure featuring gently rolling lawns, scenic ponds and soaring pines. Located in Statesboro, a safe Main Street community of approximately 30,000 residents not far from Savannah and Hilton Head Island, Georgia Southern provides the benefits of a major university with the feeling of a smaller college.


Diversity Profile: Georgia Southern University

The Diversity Services Office, Formerly the Office of Institutional Compliance, has been established to compile and publish the University's annual Affirmative Action Plan, investigate complaints of alleged violations and the rights of persons based on membership in protected classes, and serve the University's interest in promoting a diverse campus climate.

It continues to be the policy of Georgia Southern University to implement equal opportunity to all employees, students, applicants for employment or admission, and participants in any of the University’s programs without regard to race, color, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, national origin, religion, age, veteran status, political affiliation, or disability. Georgia Southern University is committed to the fulfillment of this policy which prohibits any employee, student, or patron from unlawfully harassing, threatening or physically or verbally abusing another individual with the effect of unreasonably interfering with that person's work or academic performance or of creating an intimidating, hostile, or offensive work or academic environment.

As an equal opportunity institution, Georgia Southern University is committed to nondiscriminatory practices consistent with federal and state requirements and objectives, including Executive Order 11246, as amended, Title VI and VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, The Age Discrimination in Employment Act of 1974, Vietnam Era Veterans’ Readjustment Act of 1974, as amended, Sections 503 and 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, and their implementing regulations.
Responsibility for ensuring continued implementation of this policy has been assigned to the Office of Diversity Services. Any questions regarding the University’s policy of equal opportunity should be addressed to the Director of Diversity Services at (912) 478-5136 or TDD (912) 478-0273.

In compliance with the regulations listed above, Georgia Southern University does not discriminate against any employee, student, applicant for employment, or applicant for admission in regard to any position for which the individual is qualified.

Georgia Southern University will provide reasonable accommodation to all employees, applicants for employment, students, and patrons who have physical and/or mental disabilities. Georgia Southern University will take affirmative action to employ and advance in employment persons who are qualified disabled veterans, veterans of the Vietnam Era, or other covered veterans. 

All University employees are expected to comply with the Institution’s equal opportunity policy and practices and to demonstrate commitment to the University’s equal opportunity objectives. All members of the staff, faculty, and student body are expected to embrace this policy and ensure that the Institution’s commitment to nondiscrimination is followed and upheld. A copy of the University’s Affirmative Action Program is available for inspection in the Office of Diversity Services (Room 1066 of the Rosenwald Building).

Anyone who reports what they believe to be discrimination or harassment, or who participates or cooperates in any investigation, will not be subjected to retaliation.  Anyone who believes they have been the victim of retaliation for reporting discrimination or harassment or participating or cooperating in an investigation should immediately contact the Director of Diversity Services.  Any person found to have retaliated against a person who has participated or cooperated in an investigation will be in violation of this policy and will be subject to disciplinary action.  For more information about the procedures for reporting discrimination or retaliation, contact the Office of Diversity Services at (912) 478-5136 or TDD (912) 478-0273.

This policy has my unequivocal support, and I request that all members of the staff, faculty, and student body join me in order to ensure that nondiscriminatory practices are followed and upheld at Georgia Southern University.

A walk in the sweet bouquet of a botanical garden? Catching the traveling company of a Broadway show? Maybe Mainstreet boutique shopping or a wine tasting and dinner? Browse an art show, ramble through a Farmers Market, cheer for a big-time college team or sit in on a campus lecture. That’s Statesboro. Celebrating history, thinking young. The energy of a college town, the deep roots of tradition. The warmth of a small town, wrapped in a green countryside. Come and see. Come and stay. The Averitt Center is your gateway to art galleries, community theater, and entertainment. Visit the historic Emma Kelly Theater and experience the side of Statesboro that we are proud to dress up and show off. Hot day? Have we got a place for you?
