Meet the New Executive Assistant to the President

Lauren Collier is the new executive assistant to the president at Vol State.  The executive assistant to the president provides direct assistance and advice to the president of the college in achieving goals and objectives regarding matters of institutional operations, and facilitates communication between the president and internal and external constituencies.

"I'm handling a number of internal projects, such as the Tennessee Healthier Workplace," Collier said. "And others that are more community focused, such as One Book, One Community. I'm also working with the Tennessee Complete College Academy, part of the Tennessee college completion initiative."

Dr. Collier served in the Office of the President, the Office of the Vice-President for Public Service and Outreach, and the Office of the Vice-Provost for Academic Affairs at the University of Georgia. Prior to that, she started the service-learning program at the College of Charleston and served as executive director for the South Carolina Campus Compact.

“I have a background in community engagement and worked to expand my understanding of all the functions of higher education while I was at UGA,” Collier said. “This new position allows me to utilize and grow those skills.”

Collier holds a Ph.D. from the Institute of Higher Education at the University of Georgia. She also has a Master of Social Work degree from the University of Alabama, and a bachelor of science degree from Birmingham-Southern College.
