Welcome to Georgia Southern University!
Dr. Jaimie Hebert
I am honored and proud to be the 13th president of Georgia Southern. The more you become acquainted with this great university, I am confident you will love it as much as I do.
Georgia Southern University is a place where transformative learning helps our students reach their fullest potential at every stage of life. By combining excellent academic opportunities and creativity in a supportive, student-centered environment, Georgia Southern University empowers the next generation of leaders to succeed.
We have a world-class, dedicated faculty focused on student success. They are not only engaged in groundbreaking research and innovation, but also committed to the classroom and to their students.
Our students are energetic and engaged as well. In addition to excelling in the classroom, they’re involved in student organizations, research and community outreach outside the classroom. Their achievements are outstanding, and they are a testament to the caliber of this University.
I am awed by the beauty of our campuses. In Statesboro, Sweetheart Circle’s historic buildings and sprawling oaks and greenery create a rare gem among college campuses in America, while the arboretum-style Armstrong Campus captures the beauty of historic Savannah. And impressive, modern facilities at all of our campuses are only interrupted by scenic lakes, fountains, shade trees and benches that make the University feel less like an institution and more like home.
The entire region from Savannah to Hinesville to Statesboro and beyond is instrumental in making our university community an integral part of the larger community. Business people, community leaders and residents have an amazing level of support and excitement for the University.
Doing the extraordinary seems to be the norm here and I’m energized and inspired to be part of the Eagle Nation.
As president, I will be working to ensure that our students and their professors are equipped to excel, with staff that support our overall mission. Together, we will continue the proud history of student success on all three campuses of Georgia Southern.
