I am delighted to announce the appointment of Dr. Nicolle Parsons-Pollard as Provost and Executive Vice President for Academic Affairs, beginning Feb. 1, 2023.
Being the largest university in the State of Georgia just a few blocks from the State’s Capitol Building, it was truly an honor to host the Gubernatorial Inauguration Ceremony, last week. Of course, the magnitude of this event represented a perfect opportunity to show off GSU’s new 8,000 seat Convocation Center.
As we begin a new strategic planning process at Georgia State, it’s a time to explore and discuss how the university can become an even stronger institution. As a result of our previous plan, Georgia State has made significant strides in many areas including supporting students and increasing graduation rates for all undergraduates, raising the level of research funding, and establishing new structures and programs that have launched academic excellence and culture. But we have not reached our full potential! Under the leadership of President M. Brian Blake, and with the talent and commitment of faculty and staff, we will draft a new plan using an inclusive and engaged process. As a premier urban research university, we have a crucial purpose within our state and beyond. With thoughts and voices from everyone in our university community, we will draft a strategic plan that provides a foundation for us to move Georgia State into the next decade of excellence.
-Dr. Nancy Kropf,
Senior Vice President for Strategic Initiatives
