Next Generation Program
Traditional faculty hiring at Georgia State University has focused upon the important task of building disciplinary-specific scholarly depth and meeting departmental instructional needs. College Deans, Institute Directors and Department Chairs have made internal decisions regarding how best to allocate their faculty lines to meet these critical needs, typically focusing on the hiring of junior tenure-track and non-tenure-track positions.
The Next Generation Program is a successor to the very successful Second Century Initiative (2CI), which brought 86 new faculty positions to the university between 2011 and 2015. This program aims to build strength around core and innovative research and scholarly themes that have strategic importance to the university. The initiative will add new faculty strength to maintain our growing scholarly trajectory. We aim to recruit a diverse cadre of faculty, to engage with our diverse community of students.
