The Office of Faculty Affairs is pleased to announce the selection of the inaugural Provost’s Visiting Scholars. This program brings to Georgia State University promising and leading faculty from underrepresented minority groups for short-term visits. This program serves a two-fold purpose: these visiting scholars will enrich the intellectual life of the campus at the department level and above, and they will be positioned to communicate Georgia State University’s strengths to potential future faculty members, graduate students and postdoctoral fellows. In this way, the program will enhance ongoing faculty recruitment efforts.
