Dr. Shawn Brooks

Dr. Shawn Eric Brooks has been selected as Georgia College’s incoming vice president for student affairs. Brooks will join Georgia College May 1, 2018. He will assume his new role as vice president for student affairs at Georgia College after the retirement of our current Vice President Dr. Bruce Harshbarger on June 30, 2018.

His extensive experience working with students and leadership in academia will allow him to serve Georgia College well,” said Dr. Steve Dorman, president. “We also would like to thank Dr. Harshbarger for his dedicated and enthusiastic service to our students for more than 23 years, and we wish him well in retirement.”

Brooks has served in various roles in higher education for more than 30 years. He is currently vice president for student affairs at the University of Pittsburgh where, since 2005, he has held positions as assistant director and director of residence life and associate dean of students. Brooks previously worked at St. Lawrence University, University of California — Los Angeles and Georgia Tech.

“I am very honored to have the opportunity to serve as the new vice president for student affairs,” said Brooks. “It is an exciting time to be at Georgia College and State University, and I look forward to working with the talented students, faculty and staff to help provide students with the best possible collegiate experience.” 

He received his doctorate and master’s in higher education and organizational change from University of California— Los Angeles. He also has a master’s degree in student personnel services from Indiana University of Pennsylvania and his bachelor’s of business administration from Thiel College.
