Augusta University, home of the Medical College of Georgia, is one of only four public comprehensive research institutions in the state of Georgia.

Founded in 1828, the university includes nine colleges and schools with nearly 9,000 students, over 1,000 full-time faculty and nearly 7,000 staff. It houses the nation’s ninth-largest and 13th-oldest medical school, the state’s sole dental college, an aligned and integrated health system, a growing intercollegiate athletics program, the highly respected Hull College of Business, the diverse Pamplin College of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences, among other units. With a campus of approximately 150 buildings, the university is a $1 billion-plus enterprise with statewide and national reach. The Medical College of Georgia includes a partnership campus in Athens, Ga., and satellite campuses in the Georgia cities of Albany, Rome and Savannah.

The university’s mission is to provide leadership and excellence in teaching, discovery, clinical care and service as a student-centered comprehensive research university and academic health center with a wide range of programs from learning assistance through postdoctoral studies.

As part of the GRU name change to Augusta University, a new set of design standards are needed for the exterior campuses (Health Sciences, Summerville and Forest Hills) and off-campus locationsFMG has been engaged to assist in the design and implementation of the new primary sign elements on each campus.
