Georgia State University’s Honors College offers high-achieving and highly motivated students the resources to excel academically and to prepare for successful professional careers. Most importantly, perhaps, the Honors College provides a community of talented students and the environment of a small, selective college in the midst of a large, comprehensive university.Initiative Website
Goal 2 Initiatives Completed
The University Doctoral Fellowships Program was designed to increase the number and quality of the doctoral students in GSU doctoral programs over the next 7 years so that the University may continuously enroll at least 2000 doctoral students of improving quality.Initiative
The primary goal of the initiative is to build internationally recognized scholarly strength and critical mass around common research themes in order to enhance Georgia State University’s overall quality, interdisciplinary richness, and competitiveness. It is designed to build upon the University’s strategic plan, with an emphasis on interdisciplinary collaboration. The initiative is intended to increase our level of competitive, federally funded research and to elevate GSU’s overall recognition for excellence in research.
Goal 3 Initiative Complete
The Provost’s Faculty Fellows Program provides one-semester salary support to selected faculty members to facilitate their completion of applications for preeminent international and national fellowships or awards. The Provost’s Faculty Fellows are underwritten by a $25,000 award from the Office of the Provost to the fellow’s department. The award provides one semester of course(s) buyout for the faculty member based on his or her typical teaching load. Each year, pending availability of funds, it is expected that two to three Faculty Fellows will be awarded.
