A South Georgia university is extending its education degree program to two-year colleges.
Valdosta State University has been awarded $220,000 as part of Georgia's $1.9 million dollar Enhancing Access Funding.
The money will assist in sending VSU faculty to several nearby two-year colleges to teach education courses.
"School systems are benefiting because we're supplying better teachers, two-year colleges are benefiting because there being given a great opportunity, and we're benefiting because it's boosting our enrollment," said Dr. Albert Gibbs, Education Department Head.
VSU plans on extending its education degree program to ABAC, Waycross College, and South Georgia College in Douglas.
