University of North Georgia announces new VP of Student Affairs

By AccessWDUN Staff

Dr. James F. Conneely has been named the new vice president of Student Affairs at the University of North Georgia and will assume the post July 16.

Conneely brings more than 35 years of higher education administration experience in public and private institutions to the position, according to UNG President Bonita Jacobs, including serving as the senior student affairs professional at Eastern Kentucky University from 2003 through 2012.

A former resident of Georgia, Conneely said he welcomes the chance to return to the state to help position UNG for growth and continued success while empowering the education and development of the "whole" student.

Conneely's professional experience includes serving as president of the University of Maine at Augusta, a public regional comprehensive university with multiple campuses, from November 2015 to June 2017, and as president of Notre Dame of Maryland University, a private Roman Catholic university, from July 2012 to August 2013.  He currently serves as the Superintendent of Schools for the Diocese of Lexington, Kentucky.  His previous student affairs experience includes a variety of positions with the University of Arkansas, Emory University, Villanova University, and the University of Northern Iowa.

Conneely replaces Dr. Gary Biller, who has served as the interim vice president for Student Affairs since summer 2017.
