Primary Function:

The Martha Daniel Newell Visiting Scholar

The Martha Daniel Newell Visiting Scholar program was established in 2011 with an endowment from Georgia College alumna, Mrs. Martha Daniel Newell. The Newell Visiting Scholar program promotes the Georgia College liberal arts mission by bringing to campus eminent scholars from the arts, humanities, social sciences and physical sciences, the disciplines at the heart of our liberal arts mission. The Newell Visiting Scholar program provides exciting opportunities for students, faculty and the Georgia College community to engage with, learn from, and work alongside nationally recognized senior scholars from distinguished institutions of higher learning.

Over the history of the program, visiting scholars have brought a wide range of academic fields and programming to Georgia College. For more information and examples of previous residencies see:

Georgia College is known for combining the educational experience of private liberal arts colleges with the affordability of public universities. The university's main campus is a residential learning community focused on undergraduate education and a select number of graduate programs. Faculty and staff are dedicated to engaging students through high impact pedagogies that foster intellectual curiosity, reasoned inquiry, and critical thinking. We strive for excellence in the classroom and beyond. We nurture collaborative leadership and global citizenship. We value reason, respect and responsibility. Georgia College seeks faculty and administrators who understand and embrace our public liberal arts mission and are dedicated to the advancement of knowledge through teaching, scholarship and service.

Georgia College, the preeminent liberal arts institution in the State of Georgia, is located in Milledgeville, the former state capital. Campus and community are steeped in history and culture, and surrounded by nature. Andalusia, home of author, Flannery O'Conner, is just north of town. Lake Sinclair, the Oconee River, and Baldwin State Forest offer a range of outdoor experiences. The metropolitan life of Atlanta, the beaches of coastal Georgia, and the north Georgia mountains are within a three-hour drive. Georgia College has the charm of the traditional college experience: beautiful architecture and scenery, a small-town feel and smiling faces.

Georgia College is an Equal Opportunity, Affirmative-Action Institution committed to cultural, racial, and multi-ethnic communities and compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act. It is expected that successful candidates share in this commitment.

Primary Purpose:

Georgia College invites applications and residency proposals from eminent scholars for academic years 2018-19 and 2019-20. A residency proposal should identify the goals and initiatives the scholar will bring to the Georgia College campus community during residency. While residencies may vary in length, the typical residency is for one full regular academic semester and includes teaching a course, public lectures and presentations, and/or projects. An ideal candidate will engage students, faculty and the community with their research interests and expertise. Interdisciplinary explorations and a rich variety of programming are welcomed.

The Newell Scholar will be hosted and assisted by an academic home department. A budget for programming will be assigned to the home department. The Newell scholar is provided with an office space.

In compensation, the Newell Scholar receives a $40,000 stipend for the semester. For a modest monthly rental rate, visiting scholar housing on West Campus will be available for the period of the residency.

A scholar on leave for purposes of intellectual renewal, or recently retired might be well-positioned for a semester-long residency at Georgia College.
