New emphasis on non-traditional learners
Assistant Vice President of Strategic Initiatives Delana Schartner has placed fresh emphasis on our non-traditional adult learners. They may be anxious about returning to the classroom and fitting in with younger generations, or they may be bringing significant prior learning that didn't result in a degree, and because of that Dr. Schartner is forming ways to make it easier for them to pursue their education.

Dr. Schartner is also leading the application team for Georgia Southern University to seek Carnegie Community Engaged Status for the 2026 cycle. The purpose of this elective distinction is to promote the partnership of Georgia Southern University’s knowledge and resources with those of the community’s public and private sectors.
