Rebecca N. Carroll has been appointed to serve as vice president for human resources at Augusta University, effective Feb. 1.

Carroll has nearly 20 years of experience as a chief human resources officer. She served as the associate vice president of human resources and chief human resources officer at Georgia Southern University since 2016. Prior to her appointment at GSU, she served as Armstrong State University’s chief human resources officer.

Carroll received her undergraduate degree from Augusta University and master’s degree in adult education from Armstrong State University. She holds multiple industry certifications as a Senior Professional in Human Resources and SHRM Senior Certified Professional.

Carroll’s appointment comes as the result of an extensive national search. In partnership with the Witt-Kieffer search firm, an 18-member enterprise-wide committee evaluated more than 40 applicants for the position. The search committee held virtual interviews in November and on-campus interviews in mid-December.

“Ms. Carroll possesses strong, strategic human resources experience as well as extensive knowledge of the University System of Georgia,” said Dr. Karla Leeper, executive vice president of operations. “She is the right leader for this next phase of Augusta University’s growth. I am thrilled she is joining our team.”

“I am excited to return to my alma mater,” Carroll said. “I am looking forward to being a part of the Augusta University team to build a culture of care for our community.”
