The success of Augusta University and its students is inextricably linked to the success of our faculty. In the Office of Faculty Affairs, we are dedicated to creating an environment and culture that promotes the success of our faculty, beginning with recruitment and hiring, and continuing throughout their career.

Our focus is holistic and comprehensive, leveraging partnerships with colleges, schools, departments, and other units across campus to enhance the quality of the faculty life and promote a culture of faculty excellence. To this end, we focus on all aspects of faculty life, from the policies and processes that create the framework for the faculty experience to the programs and celebrations that support and engage faculty members with their students, their peers and colleagues, their disciplines and professions, and their institution.
