Narrative

University of North Georgia (UNG) is in compliance with this comprehensive standard. As part of the institutional consolidation that formed UNG, a new organizational structure[1] was established and positions filled almost exclusively with current employees.  The UNG administrative positions were typically filled by individuals who had served in the same or a similar position at Gainesville State College (GSC) or North Georgia College & State University (NGCSU) prior to the effective date of consolidation.

 

UNG has qualified administrative and academic officers with the experience, competence, and capacity to lead the institution.  These individuals exercised their leadership during the process of preparing to have the institutions consolidated and have continued to demonstrate effective leadership as consolidation activities solidified in 2013. The organizational charts[1] and the position explanation table posted below demonstrate that the individuals who have assumed the UNG administrative positions are well qualified to hold those positions. These administrators all have extensive years of progressive experience related to the position they hold, as well as appropriate academic and professional credentials.
