New president takes helm at Georgia Southern University

Dr. Jaimie Hebert

(Statesboro)- It’s the first day on the job for Georgia Southern University’s new leader. Today, Dr. Jaimie Hebert assumes his position as the university’s 13th president.

In his first hundred days, Hebert will be gathering information and ideas by asking students, alumni, faculty, staff and the community to complete a survey to share their thoughts on Georgia Southern, and identify what they feel should be his first priorities.

Prior to this role, Dr. Hebert served as the provost and vice president for academic affairs at Sam Houston State University in Huntsville, Texas, where he spent the majority of his academic career.

During his tenure as provost, Hebert added several doctoral, master’s and undergraduate degrees at Sam Houston State, and played an integral role in securing gifts of more than $35 million for academic programs.
