Next Gen Advantage: Unmatched Faculty Opportunities, Unmatched Reputation
Georgia State University’s reputation for innovative and interdisciplinary research and scholarship has attracted more than 100 faculty through the Second Century Initiative (2CI) and Next Generation Program.
That reputation, earned over nearly a decade, is still growing as the Next Gen program continues to support unique and pioneering programs not often found at other colleges and universities across the country. 2CI and Next Gen faculty directors said they have been blown away by the interest, number, and quality of applicants for Georgia State faculty positions under these strategic faculty hiring programs.
“I think that what is really attractive for these candidates is that they will be given the opportunity to do cutting-edge, innovative research that are extensions of their existing fields,” said Anne Tucker, Associate Professor of Law with the Next Generation Program-supported Legal Analytics Lab, and faculty director of the Legal Analytics & Innovation Initiative at the College of Law. “They’re coming to a university where it’s supported, and we accept the challenges and complications of interdisciplinary work.”
