Dr. Greg Tanner, Dean of Students

At South Georgia State College, you’ll find we have way more to offer than just the status quo. We have faculty that truly care about our students, encourage them to get involved with fun activities on campus and make themselves available to ensure student success. If you’re one of our residential students on the Douglas Campus, you will have access to your own bedroom (yes, you read that right). Plus, no more community bathrooms and showers; at SGSC you’ll have a semi-private bathroom. If you’re looking for something to do, our Campus Life staff always have fun events of the week planned.

As your Dean, my goal is to create a vibrant community that enhances the quality of your student life experience. The areas that are under my supervision are: Residence Life, Housing, Campus Life, Athletics, Office of Student Conduct, and Title IX Coordinator. For more information regarding these areas, please click on the link below.

If there is anything that I can do to assist in your journey, please do not hesitate to contact me. I look forward to seeing you on campus soon!
