Last week the University System of Georgia’s Board of Regents passed a vote to acknowledge two-term Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal as a Regents Professor. This big news was first reported by The Atlanta Journal-Constitution and then confirmed by University System of Georgia vice chancellor for communications Jen Ryan.
“Gov. Nathan Deal embodies the Board of Regents’ vision for a Regents Professor and we look forward to his continued contributions to students, the University System of Georgia and our state in this new role,” Ryan told The Red & Black.
According to the AJC, professor Deal will take over the classroom beginning March 1. He will teach at several USG schools, including the University of Georgia.
"The University of Georgia looks forward to welcoming Governor Deal to the campus later this spring," UGA President Jere Morehead said in a statement. "He joins a long list of distinguished public servants who have taught at our institution, after completing their terms of office, including Zell Miller and Saxby Chambliss."
Deal’s salary will be around $120,000 a year, USG Chancellor Steve Wrigley told the AJC.
Deal will be teaching political science and law to undergraduate students, according to the AJC.
“Deal’s decades of public service, leadership and policy experience at the state and national levels have shaped legislation, initiatives and programs in a vast array of areas, including health care, criminal justice reform, education and economic development,” Ryan said.
