Neal Weaver, Ph.D.


Welcome to Georgia Southwestern State University…a campus where faculty and staff make a big impact, giving students big challenges, delivered with passion and focus, to help shape eager thinkers, explorers, doers and achievers.  Students enter GSW with excitement and eagerness to begin learning how their lives might evolve, and we challenge them to become their best self, giving them tools to light their path as they grow with the confidence that they are capable of fulfilling their dreams and potential.

The campus is a beautiful place with a small town feel, filled with extraordinary people dedicated to creating an environment of student-focused teaching and learning, a rich cultural environment and a commitment to economic development throughout Southwest Georgia.  

There is no better place to be than part of a college campus, and the GSW campus is special even among our peers.  The dedication and enthusiasm among students, faculty, staff and alumni makes for a strong community that leads to success in the classroom, in competition and in our relationships.  Together we are a collective force that extends far beyond our little corner of Georgia. 

At GSW you’re surrounded by people from all over the world and all walks of life, and attending GSW means you get more than just a degree to hang on the wall.  GSW is a springboard  - not just to a degree, but to your future, to new skills, to unlocking new wisdom and to creating new relationships that will steer your dreams and shape your path forward for years to come. 

It is my honor to serve as president of Georgia Southwestern State University, where together, we will Take Tomorrow by Storm.
