Georgia Southern University Launches Research Partnership with Waterford Institute of Technology, Georgia Historical Society and John F. Kennedy Trust

Georgia Southern University welcomed Dr. Leo Varadkar, Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport in Ireland, on March 18, 2014 at a reception in the Eugene M. Bishop Alumni Center to recognize the launch of the Wexford-Savannah Axis research partnership. The partnership examines how and why so many people from the Irish county of Wexford and Southeastern Ireland immigrated to Savannah, Ga., in the 19th century, and the impact that had on Irish and American generations in both countries. The initiative is a joint research project between Waterford Institute of Technology (WIT), Georgia Southern University, the Georgia Historical Society and the John F. Kennedy Trust. Many people in the Savannah area claim Irish ancestry, and many of those can trace that ancestry to Southeastern Ireland, mostly from Wexford. After Tuesday's announcement, Minister Varadkar congratulated the team on the innovative nature of the partnership.

Georgia Southern University to Expand its Research Activities with the Recent Addition of a New Asphalt Research Lab

Georgia Southern University is continuing to expand its research activities with the recent addition of a new asphalt research lab within its Allen E. Paulson College of Engineering and Information Technology. The new lab will provide research services to a variety of state and private companies, including the Georgia Department of Transportation. Initially, the lab will be used to conduct scientific research for the GDOT, but University officials say additional opportunities exist to support the U.S. Federal Highway Administration, National Science Foundation and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. The lab is also capable of providing services to regional industry and certification training for technicians. In keeping with Georgia Southern's focus on teaching and education, the lab will serve as a valuable training tool providing application-based learning and research opportunities for engineering students.
