Georgia College & State University is the state's designated
public liberal arts university. As a member of the prestigious
Council of Public Liberal Arts Colleges (COPLAC), Georgia College
is committed to fostering a liberal arts environment that values
interdisciplinary inquiry, diversity and inclusion, and academic
excellence. The College enrolls approximately 7,000 students –5,800
undergraduate and 1,200 graduate students-- and is prominently
cited for excellence in teaching, undergraduate research, nursing
education, and high impact practices outside the classroom in a
number of leading publications.
The university's beautiful and historic campus is located
downtown in Milledgeville, Georgia, a charming, diverse college
town of approximately 19,000 residents in Central Georgia,
approximately 90 miles southeast of Atlanta. Milledgeville is also
the home of noted American author and alumna, Flannery O’Conner,
and the college community enjoys many exciting literary arts
programs at O’Connor’s former home, the Andalusia Institute, now
owned by the College. Milledgeville is also located on the
banks of beautiful Lake Sinclair and Lake Oconee, allowing faculty,
staff, and students to take full advantage of the environmental and
recreational benefits of being part of a lake community. For
cultural, educational, and leisure opportunities beyond
Milledgeville, Macon and Atlanta are located within easy driving
Georgia College takes great pride in combining the educational
experience of private liberal arts colleges with the affordability
of a public university. The university's main campus is a
residential learning community focused on undergraduate education
and a select number of graduate programs. Faculty and staff are
dedicated to engaging students through high-impact pedagogies that
foster intellectual curiosity, reasoned inquiry, and critical
thinking. We strive for excellence in the classroom and beyond. We
nurture collaborative leadership and global citizenship, and we
value diversity and inclusion in all of its forms.
Georgia College seeks faculty and administrators who understand
and embrace our public liberal arts mission, who are committed to
respecting and fostering diversity and inclusion inside and outside
of the classroom, and who are dedicated to the advancement of
knowledge through teaching, scholarship, and service. All Georgia
College faculty share the responsibility of teaching our core
curriculum and providing foundation courses for majors and
non-majors alike. To carry out our public liberal arts mission, we
seek faculty with the desire and ability to provide a first-class
learning experience for our students, one that will prepare them to
be competent, thoughtful, and well-rounded leaders who make
transformative contributions to their communities and to the world.
