1 Leadership Profile Columbus State University President This search is being assisted by:

2 Columbus State University, a member of the University System of Georgia, seeks a dynamic, energetic academic servant-leader as its next president. The successful candidate in this national search will lead a growing university located in Georgia s second largest city that offers high-demand undergraduate and graduate level programs on the main and RiverPark campuses in Columbus as well as courses at nearby Fort Benning and in Leesburg, Georgia. The incoming president will follow Dr. Timothy Mescon, whose tenure since he was named president in 2008 has been a period of transformative growth and achievement for the university. Located 100 miles southwest of Atlanta, the university (www.columbusstate.edu) is on an impressive forward trajectory. Serving the Southeast while attracting students from around the world, Columbus State offers nationally distinctive programs in the sciences and humanities as well as the arts, education, business, nursing, and other disciplines. Total enrollment is more than 8,200 with a student/faculty member ratio of 20:1. There are 314 full-time faculty and 521 full-time staff. The annual budget is approaching $100 million and the university s economic impact on the surrounding region is $247 million annually. A leader in the delivery of online programs, CSU offers an extensive array of courses and degree programs that can be taken face-to-face, hybrid, or totally online that serve the needs of a large and diverse student body. Online courses comprise about 30 percent of credit hour production and serve students globally as well as those who live on or near the campus (http://online.columbusstate.edu).

3 During its first 55 years, the university has evolved from grassroots beginnings on the site of an abandoned textile mill to one of the top regional universities in the South. With a proven ability to meet the changing needs of the region, Columbus State thrives on community partnerships and has built long-term relationships with corporate and private donors, alumni, and Georgia business leaders along with global partners. The Jim Blanchard Leadership Forum (http://jblf.org) is hosted annually on campus and brings nationally prominent entrepreneurs, authors, and world leaders to share their success stories. Next year s announced speakers include former President George W. Bush and his family, Doris Kearns Goodwin, Gen. Stanley McChrystal, and Daniel Pink. The city is known for nationally acclaimed art and history museums as well as the State Theatre of Georgia. Four CSU educational outreach centers the Oxbow Meadows Environmental Learning Center, the Coca-Cola Space Science Center, the Columbus Regional Mathematics Collaborative, and the Carson McCullers Center for Writers and Musicians extend its reputation as a teaching university, offering learning opportunities for students as well as the public. The downtown RiverPark campus includes a state-of-the art performing arts complex, visual art galleries, a theatre facility, and student apartment buildings. CSU is finalizing plans to expand its downtown presence further with the purchase and renovation of the historic Ledger-Enquirer building, which will eventually be home to the College of Education and Health Professions, thanks to private community support. Now in the final planning stages of a comprehensive capital campaign, the university has an enviable history of private sector support. The last capital campaign raised more than $100 million for priority initiatives, eclipsing the original $67 million goal by nearly 50 percent (http://news.columbusstate.edu/capital-campaign-raises-more-than-100-million). The upcoming campaign will support the goals and strategies of the current five-year strategic plan, making substantial investments to secure CSU s position as a first choice university for students and faculty.

4 By definition, Columbus State strives to be the preferred destination for discerning students who seek challenging programs, engaged faculty, and a vibrant, globally-connected campus culture in a creative, personal setting. The university s primary strengths are its central location, comparative value, focus on teaching excellence, experiential learning opportunities, cultural enrichment opportunities, and public-private partnerships. Columbus State serves the educational needs of a diverse region by providing a mixture of liberal arts and professional programs leading to associate, baccalaureate, and graduate degrees. Accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools, the university offers degree programs in four colleges: College of the Arts, Turner College of Business, College of Education and Health Professions, and College of Letters and Sciences. The colleges house 19 academic departments, three schools the Schwob School of Music, the School of Nursing, and the TSYS School of Computer Science and two cross-college collaborative programs (Degree in Three and UTeach Columbus). Additionally, the newly-formed CSU Honors College is designed for academically talented students committed to engaging in their individual disciplines through experiential learning and creative scholarship. Students choose from among 46 undergraduate degree programs 42 graduate degree programs. The Doctor of Education degree includes specializations in Curriculum, Leadership, and Higher Education. Student success is a priority at Columbus State. In keeping with its mission, the university provides highly personalized studentsupport services, which helped to increase the freshman-sophomore retention rate significantly last year. Students in all majors have opportunities to enhance traditional learning through internships, clinical experiences, cooperative education, and field research alongside senior professors. Columbus State is among seven U.S. colleges and universities recognized in 2014 for innovative international programs. Online graduate programs in education and business have been ranked by U.S. News & World Report as among the best 50 such programs in the country. The online Master s degree program in Computer Science is among America s best values. In the 2015 Best Value Online college rankings, OnlineU.org ranks the Nursing degree #18 and Business #20. Columbus State is emerging as a national player in STEM teacher preparation efforts with about $3 million in national grants during the past few years from the Robert Noyce Teacher Scholarship Program funded by the National Science Foundation, the U.S. Department of Education Race to the Top initiative and the Woodrow Wilson Foundation, which made Georgia the first state in the South to join the growing national Woodrow Wilson Teaching Fellowships program. The quality and diversity of student life is robust. CSU athletic teams have earned NCAA championships in baseball, intramural basketball, club bass fishing, and riflery and there are myriad

5 opportunities to participate in 15 Greek organizations and over 100 clubs and sports teams. The university offers apartment-style dorms that serve 1,200 students. An aspirational five-year strategic plan that was developed in a broad, campus-wide process is now in its second year and sets forth six key priorities: Attract a higher percentage of students with the motivation and preparation to complete a degree. Employ more creative instructional methods to meet the needs of diverse students. Increase student academic and social engagement and sense of belonging. Sustain the university s growth by focusing resources in areas with strong potential based on emerging opportunities. Improve faculty/staff retention, job satisfaction, and productivity. Improve stewardship through leadership in sustainability programs, the efficient use of resources, and external partnerships. The university is a hub of international education and exchange, striving to ensure that all students have opportunities to become globally competent through academic programs that are offered on every major continent (http://studyabroad.columbusstate.edu). The Center for International Education is dedicated to infusing international perspectives broadly throughout the curricula, promoting and assisting with international faculty development, ensuring optimum experiences for international students, supporting visiting and exchange scholars, and stimulating awareness of international issues and multiculturalism.

6 Columbus State is one of only four U.S. universities with a visiting student program based at its own facility on the Oxford University campus. Spencer House at Oxford is a refurbished residential property that gives CSU students and faculty a home away from home for study and cultural exploration. There are numerous opportunities to earn scholarships and grants for study abroad and the number of students who participate in study-abroad programs has increased 30 percent year over year. Columbus State is one of four institutions to win the 2014 NAFSA Association of International Educators' Senator Paul Simon Awards for Campus Internationalization, considered the ultimate honor for a university in terms of recognizing innovative efforts to make students more aware of the world at large. The City of Columbus Located on the banks of the Chattahoochee River, Columbus (http://visitcolumbusga.com) is a prosperous city of 200,000-plus that is home to national corporations that include Aflac, Carmike Cinemas, W.C. Bradley Co., Blue Cross/Blue Shield, NCR Corp., Realtree, Synovus Financial Corp., and TSYS. Kia Motors Manufacturing Georgia, Inc. and Callaway Gardens are located nearby. The U.S. Army base at Fort Benning supports more than 120,000 active duty military and their families as well as reserves, retirees, and civilian employees. Town-gown partnerships with the university flourish and private-sector support is robust. A sportsman s paradise, southwest Georgia is a haven for world-class hunting, fishing, whitewater rafting, and other year-round outdoor pursuits of every kind. The Chattahoochee River Walk is a spectacular 15-mile linear River Walk park that anchors the center of the city.
