    About Savannah State University

    SSU's mission statement has evolved over the past four decades. As of August 2009, a task force led by Dr. Mostafa Sarhan, Dean of COBA, completed a two-year process revising the mission statement. This statement (Sarhan-Yarbrough) has been forwarded to the Board of Regents for approval. Savannah State University, the oldest public historically black university in the State of Georgia, develops productive members of a global society through high quality instruction, scholarship, research, service and community involvement. The University fosters engaged learning and personal growth in a student-centered environment that celebrates the African American legacy while nurturing a diverse student body. Savannah State University offers graduate and undergraduate studies including nationally accredited programs in the liberal arts, the sciences and the professions.
