Governor’s Funding Award Boosts MGA’s Dublin Campus Healthcare Program Expansion

Governor’s Funding Award Boosts MGA’s Dublin Campus Healthcare Program Expansion 

Thanks to $900,000 in new funding the Georgia governor’s office has awarded, Middle Georgia State University (MGA) is substantially bolstering an expansion of the Dublin Campus as a healthcare degree program hub, a project that has been underway since late 2020. Gov. Brian Kemp announced the award on Jan. 10, 2022.

“We are grateful to Gov. Kemp for his confidence in Middle Georgia State University to use this new funding in a way that will greatly impact Dublin and Laurens County and allow us to help address the critical nursing shortage,” said Dr. Christopher Blake, MGA president. “The Dublin Campus expansion will provide the means for our nursing students to learn specific skills to deliver healthcare to rural areas. This funding will allow us to graduate more nurses at a time when they are desperately needed, further fulfilling our institution’s mission of providing quality, career-driven education and graduating inspired, lifelong learners whose scholarship and careers enhance the region.”
