KENNESAW, Ga. (Aug 31, 2018) — Kennesaw State's new president likes to start off each day on the treadmill, and she's looking to hit the ground running as the head of Georgia's third-largest university.
Speaking to the MDJ's editorial board, Pamela Whitten, who took over at KSU after four and a half years as provost at the University of Georgia, said the future is bright for Cobb's largest post-secondary institution.
A leader in innovative teaching and learning, Kennesaw State University offers more than 150 undergraduate, graduate and doctoral degrees to its approximately 41,000 students. With 11 colleges on two metro Atlanta campuses, Kennesaw State is a member of the University System of Georgia and the third-largest university in the state.
