The Board of Regents of the University System of Georgia (USG) and the Presidential Search and Screen Committee invite nominations and applications for the position of President of Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College (ABAC).

Since 1908, ABAC has provided unique, hands-on learning opportunities for students as the South’s premier destination for agricultural studies. While the School of Agriculture and Natural Resources is the largest area of study, ABAC’s offerings have grown a great deal since its founding, now including a wide range of traditional 4-year degrees and paths to success including nursing, which is the largest single major, innovative arts and science tracks, and an ever-growing list of learning opportunities and majors.

Learning laboratories such as the J.G. Woodroof Farm, the Forest Lakes Golf Club and the 1,000-acre, John W. and Margaret Jones Langdale Forest, enhance the academic curriculum. ABAC's 516-acre campus also includes the Georgia Museum of Agriculture and Historic Village, located one mile south of the main campus. Key components of the museum include an 1890s village, a blacksmith shop, a grist mill, a cotton gin, a print shop, a sawmill, and a steam locomotive.

As a member of the 26- member University System of Georgia, ABAC enrolls 3,923 students from 156 of 159 Georgia counties, 23 countries, and 21 states, on its main campus in Tifton and additional instructional site in Bainbridge. For more information, please visit:     

ABAC’s next president will be a visionary, strategic leader who is student-centered, committed to diversity and inclusion, and has exemplary interpersonal and communication skills. The College seeks an empowering, transparent leader who is highly visible and engaged in building relationships on campus, in the local community and at the state level.

The successful individual will have a demonstrated commitment to shared governance, experience in managing the financial and budgetary operations of an organization, a strong fundraising record and the personal and professional integrity to unite the institution moving forward. An earned doctorate or terminal degree is required; higher education administrative and teaching experience is strongly preferred.

Confidential inquiries, nominations and applications are invited. Review of applications will continue until the position is filled. For fullest consideration, application materials should be received no later than March 1. Candidates should provide a resume or CV and a letter of application. Nominations and application materials should be sent electronically via email to ABAC’s search consultants Ann Yates and Rob Franklin at
