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.
