SUSAN DAVIES, PhD

Vice President for Enrollment and Student Affairs

Susan Davies, Ph.D., serves as Vice President for Enrollment and Student Affairs at Augusta University.  Her love and advocacy for student success began in college as an orientation leader, which led to pursuing avenues to serve professionally in higher education. Now, as VP, she brings more than 25 years of experience, providing overall leadership and management of the Division’s 14 departments.  Her vision and decision-making are rooted in the belief that students are our #1 priority.

A leader and ally among students and her peers, Dr. Davies was the project leader - both in the creation and launch - of Augusta University’s 2022-2027 Strategic Enrollment Management Plan. The SEM Plan connects recruitment with student success and retention, focusing on goals and strategies that position AU for future enrollment growth.

She earned a bachelor’s degree in English from Georgia Southern University, a master’s degree in college student development from Bowling Green State University, and a doctorate in educational studies from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. 

In addition, she is a member of the National Association of Student Personnel Administrators, the Southern Association for College Student Affairs, and the American Association of Collegiate Registrar and Admissions Officers. She served as a faculty member for the SACSA and NASPA Region III’s Mid-Managers Institute in 2019 and 2022, and co-chairs the NASPA Enrollment Management Knowledge Community. She is the 2022-2023 chair of the Regents Administrative Committee on Enrollment Management.
