Brooks A Keel, Ph.D.
President, Georgia Regents University
CEO, Georgia Regents Health System

I can’t tell you how excited and honored I am to be president of GRU and CEO of Georgia Regents Health System. I — like so many across our state and nation — have watched in awe and admiration as the talented and visionary faculty, staff and administration on our campuses have transformed GRU into a powerful center of innovation in Georgia.

When offered the opportunity to lead GRU into the future, I didn’t hesitate: I chose GRU.

I had the great good fortune to earn both my undergraduate and graduate degrees here, so I know firsthand the fantastic opportunities in research, scholarship and leadership available to all who come here. At GRU, you can:

Add to that our location in beautiful Augusta, Georgia, a growing, thriving city on the banks of the historic Savannah River with rich cultural and recreational opportunities.

So explore, compare, ask questions … and choose to create your future at GRU, a world-class destination of choice for education, health care, discovery, creativity, and innovation.
