The Means Report: Augusta University President Discusses Growing The University And Augusta

Augusta, GA — From educating the cyber experts of the future, to changing the “face” of the Garden City, this is a very busy time for Augusta University. We tackle those topics on The Means Report this week.

Brad Means welcomes special guest — Augusta University President — Dr. Brooks Keel. He talks about the efforts to transform the old Golf and Gardens into a cyber village. It will be a place where students can learn about cyber security and prepare to put those skills to work when they graduate.

“And what we’re sort of envisioning is a place — a campus — where we would move all of our cyber security training,” Dr. Keel explains. “So classrooms, students, faculty, and offices are there, but also a place for business and industry to come. We know that a lot of businesses have already come to Augusta in support cyber command going to Fort Gordon. In 2020 that cyber command will be set up. That will be the army’s go to place for cyber security in the country.”

Dr. Keel also looks at the future of the Summerville campus, and he updates us on the efforts to put the Augusta University Cancer Center in the national spotlight.Part 2
