President Weaver releases message to GSW community

“Over the last 10 days, we have witnessed, once again, how disgusting acts of racism and racial injustice have not only caused the deaths of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery and countless others but also ripped our country and our communities further apart.  The members of our Black and African-American community should be angry, frustrated and concerned.  I want you to know that I personally condemn the racism and the persistent injustice that has undermined the rhetoric of equality and opportunity we have heard for decades.  As an institution, Georgia Southwestern will stand with our black students, faculty, staff and alumni and affirm our belief in the dignity and value of each individual and our commitment to being a campus that will not tolerate any form of racism.

In my office, I keep a copy of Theodore Roosevelt’s famous quote about the Man in the Arena, and it reminds me that it is not the critic who points out where the Doer of Deeds could have done better that should get credit.  Instead, it is the person who spends himself on a worthy cause, who knows both the triumph of high achievement and the pain of failing while daring greatly, who is to be celebrated.

For too long and after too many horrifying examples, I have continued to stand outside the arena thinking this was not my fight, not my issue.  But now, your pain, your voice, and your protest have awakened me to my responsibility.  So today, I enter this arena with you and will stand with you, shoulder-to-shoulder, daring greatly in pursuit of high achievement and for the worthiest of causes. We must end all forms and all manifestations of racism and we should not divert our attention until this cause is achieved.”

Dr. Neal Weaver, GSW President

GSW Foundation kicks off Florrie Chappell renovation campaign

Upon its opening in 1939, the Florrie Chappell Gymnasium was a hub of student activity. We constantly hear stories from alumni about concerts, dances, Homecoming skits, intramural sports and freezing cold swimming lessons. After years of wear and tear, the “old gym” will soon be under renovation, being revived into a fitness and recreation center for our students and community. We have the opportunity to restore what matters and impact future GSW students’ lives.

To accommodate the remaining cost of renovations, the University is undergoing a capital fund drive. Please consider helping to "restore glory to ole Florrie". If you have questions about how to support this project, please contact the GSW Foundation at (229) 931-2014.

Help us bring this building back to life! Make your gift online here.

Leeder accepts AD position at Arkansas Tech

GSW Director of Athletics Mike Leeder has announced his resignation after six years of leading the Hurricanes to pursue a similar position at Arkansas Tech University. Leeder has served at Georgia Southwestern for a total of 17 years as he guided the men's basketball team for 10 seasons prior to his appointment as the full-time director of athletics.

"I would like to thank Dr. (Michael) Haynes for hiring me as the head men's basketball coach as we transitioned from the NAIA to NCAA division II, to Dr. (Kendall) Blanchard for having the belief in me that I could run the athletics department when he allowed me to assume the role of director of athletics in 2014, to Dr. (Charles) Patterson for allowing me to pursue the director of athletics position full time and allowing me to step away from role as head men's basketball coach in 2016, and finally to Dr. (Neal) Weaver who has no doubt prepared me for this opportunity at Arkansas Tech," Leeder said. "I respect him as my boss, but I value him as a friend. His leadership the past three years has had a significant impact on our competitive success in athletics, and I am grateful for all that he has done for the university."
