Welcome to Georgia Southern University!
Dr. Jaimie Hebert
I am honored and proud to be the 13th president of Georgia Southern. I can already tell what an exceptional place this is. And the more I see, the more I am amazed with this University.
Georgia Southern is truly a place where the best and brightest gather. 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 this campus. Sweetheart Circle, with its historic buildings and its sprawling oaks and greenery, is a rare gem among college campuses in America. The rows of impressive facilities along the “pedestrium” are only interrupted by scenic lakes, shade trees and benches that make the campus feel less like an institution and more like home.
Statesboro and Bulloch County have been instrumental in making our university community an integral part of the larger community. Business people, community leaders and residents have gone out of their way to make me feel welcome, and I am impressed with the support and excitement they share for the University.
Doing the extraordinary seems to be the norm here, and I’m energized and inspired to join the Eagle Nation.
As president, I will be working to ensure that our students and their professors are equipped to excel, and to continue the proud history of student success at Georgia Southern.
