The University System of Georgia's Board of Regents authorize a
Bachelor of Science in Nursing for Macon State, a degree President
David A. Bell said is a compliment to the College's mission to respond
to the economic and social needs of Central Georgia. The new degree
will help remedy Central Georgia's shortage of professional nurses.
NURSING CAREERS: A LOOK
AT THE FACTS
Great Day for Houston County
Georgia lawmakers grant $5 million for an expanded Warner Robins
Center for Macon State, a project strongly supported by city and
state elected officials from Houston County.
A Jumpstart on College
High school students earning college credit, tuition free, before
they graduate? It may sound too good to me true, but hundreds of
Central Georgia high school students have gotten a jumpstart on
college through Macon State's Postsecondary Options program.
Postsecondary Options a Family
Affair for the Redds
Mike Hale, former chief information officer for Georgia & Florida,
brings his business & technology expertise to Macon State as
Institute for Information Management director.
Partnering with Robins Air
In Macon State's most important economic development partnership
to date, the College and Robins Air Force Base are launching a state-sponsored
project to produce more software specialists for one of the nation's
key defense logistics centers.
Reaching Adult Students
One of the University System's strategies for creating a more educated
Georgia is to encourage potential students over then age of 25 to
begin or finish college. Macon State makes special efforts to reach
this adult market in Central Georgia.
Show of Support
The Macon State College Foundation's Annual Community Campaign draws
strong support from a cross-section of Central Georgia leaders.
