Dr. Ginger Szabo-Durham joined Advanced Learning Technologies with the University System of Georgia (USG) in 2005 where she served as a project coordinator. In 2008, she became Director of Faculty Development when the unit was absorbed by the Office of Faculty Development. In 2015 she was promoted to Assistant Vice Chancellor for Faculty Development. During her tenure at the USG, Ginger was instrumental in supporting and growing the community of Center for Teaching and Learning representatives, coordinating numerous faculty development programs, and launching the USG Scholarship of Teaching and Learning Fellows program. She initiated a successful system-wide online Faculty Learning Community effort in support of system initiatives, including service-learning and AAC&U’s LEAP.

Ginger had a lasting impact on the Office of Faculty Development and all those she came in contact with. The Wednesday Luncheon Keynote Address to the USG Teaching and Learning Conference is dedicated to her memory.
