The Implementation Steering Committee for the Next Generation of Faculty has issued its December 2020 progress report for Georgia State’s efforts in improving faculty recruitment and faculty retention.
Each report breaks down progress on action steps as outlined for implementation based on the recommendations of the Commission for the Next Generation of Faculty.

The Commission for the Next Generation of Faculty was established in 2017 to recommend “programs and strategies to strengthen, distinguish, and diversify Georgia State University’s faculty. The Commission was charged with addressing Goal 4, Initiative 3 of the 2011-16/21 GSU Strategic Plan which states that the university will be a ‘nationally recognized model for leadership in inclusion.’
At the implementation steering committee’s first meeting in December 2019, Provost Wendy Hensel charged the committee to:
- Provide advice and guidance on how to best implement the recommendations and best practices initiatives as outlined in the report
- Serve as a liaison between the provost and university community on matters relating to the implementation of Commission recommendations and best practices initiatives
- Assist with the publication of an annual report to the university community identifying action steps taken and progress toward achievement of recommendations and best practices initiatives.
The next ISC report is anticipated for publication in June 2021.
