Georgia State’s Identity

Georgia State University, an enterprising public research university in Atlanta, is a national leader in graduating students from diverse backgrounds. The university provides its world-class faculty and more than 50,000 students with unsurpassed connections to the opportunities available in one of the 21st century’s great global cities.


President Mark BeckerAs members of the Georgia State community, we are all well aware of the important contributions our university makes to the world. But with increasing competition for the understanding and interest of the public, the rapidly evolving complexity of modern communications and the growth of social media and other channels, it is a continuing challenge for Georgia State to clearly and consistently tell its story to people who are critical to our success.

That is why it is essential that we define ourselves in an honest and distinctive manner, to zero in on the important elements that make our university special and to consistently convey critical messages that will foster public understanding and support for Georgia State.

We are an innovative university that transforms students’ lives in ways that few other institutions can achieve, thanks to the mentoring, encouragement and creative solutions they get from our faculty and staff across our campus.
