Great Ideas Selected for Fall 2015

During our first semester as a university, we continued to receive ideas in the President’s Greatness Dropbox.


Some ideas, like placing a traffic light at the Macon Campus entrance on Eisenhower Parkway, are not within our discretion. Others, like gift cards for the café, are not financially feasible right now. And others, like the involvement of faculty and department chairs in congratulating graduates at commencement, will soon be under way.


Of the ideas received in Fall 2015, two were selected as great ideas.  One, from Pamela Arlov in English, is the adoption of a Student Honor Code.  Our Student Government Association is taking the lead on developing the MGA Honor Code, with the support of our VP for Student Affairs and our Provost.  The other, from Amy Bryant in Occupational Therapy, is to take MGA into local high schools. Our recruiters are exploring ways to make that happen.


We received a dozen ideas in the Greatness Dropbox this semester, adding to more than 100 received in 2014-15. Your comments through the Dropbox, at Open Office Hours with the President, and in our Townhall meetings—the last of which will be December 1 on our Macon Campus—are shaping the future of this university.


Your candor and creativity help us move forward together.  For the status of all of the ideas received in the Greatness Dropbox this year, check out the summary on InsideMGA.
