GSW to honor Carter legacy with new President Jimmy Carter Leadership Program

Carter at graduation webGeorgia Southwestern State University (GSW) plans to honor the legacy of GSW alumnus and former U.S. President Jimmy Carter with the new President Jimmy Carter Leadership Program set to launch in Fall 2019. The program consists of two pathways, an Undergraduate Research Track and a Service Track, that exemplify Carter’s lifetime of leadership in education, politics and community service.

“I have always had a close attachment to Georgia Southwestern, and I am honored to be associated with their new leadership program,” said Carter. “They invested in me as a student over 75 years ago, and I want to do the same for the future leaders in our region. I’m very proud of the partnerships that continue to be made at my favorite college.”

During his time as an undergraduate at GSW in the 1940s, Carter was one of four student leaders chosen to sign their names in the newly poured concrete of the Wheatley Administration Building driveway. Today, Carter’s 1942 signature etching is installed in GSW’s Presidential Plaza alongside a similar etching made by President Carter during the Plaza dedication in 2017. In sharing his name with GSW’s new leadership program, President Carter is making a permanent impression on countless students in Southwest Georgia.

 GSW announces Nursing program expansion to address South Georgia’s critical nursing shortage

GSW recently announced an expansion of their Nursing program that will effectively double the number of students entering the program each year to help address the critical shortage of nurses in the state of Georgia.

Beginning with the 2019-2020 academic year, GSW’s College of Nursing and Health Sciences will open a second nursing enrollment period that will allow an additional cohort of students to enter the program during Spring semester. Currently, a single enrollment period each fall admits 40 students into the nursing program. The second enrollment period will double the number of enrolled students and nursing graduates.

“This is an exciting time for aspiring nursing students to come to GSW,” said College of Nursing and Health Sciences Dean Sandra Daniel, Ph.D. “By creating a culture and momentum for success, we anticipate more applicants to and graduates from our nursing program who will be instrumental in addressing the nursing workforce needs in our region and across the state.”
