The pending consolidation with Armstrong State University to form the new Georgia Southern University will have real effects on Georgia Southern’s Statesboro campus, which will no longer be the home base of all of the university’s constituent colleges. Recommendations the Consolidation Implementation Committee, or CIC, made this summer will place the headquarters of the College of Education, the Jiann-Ping Hsu College of Public Health and what will now be the Don and Cindy Waters College of Health Professions on the Armstrong campus in Savannah. While the Armstrong campus gets those three, the Statesboro campus will get the headquarters, including the deans’ offices, of five colleges.
