Dr. Brian Etheridge came to GGC after serving as the associate provost for Academic Innovation at the University of Baltimore. He holds B.S. degrees in international affairs and in history, technology and society from Georgia Tech, an M.A. degree in history from the University of Georgia and a Ph.D. in history from The Ohio State University.
Etheridge began his academic career at Louisiana Tech University where he held a full-time faculty appointment in history and served as director of the University’s Honors program, research director of the American Foreign Policy Center and director of Graduate Studies in History. At the University of Baltimore, he founded the Office of Academic Innovation, which incorporated the Helen P. Denit Honors Program, the Bank of America Center for Excellence in Learning, Teaching and Technology (CELTT) and a new experiential learning program.
Throughout his career, Etheridge has spoken and published widely on undergraduate education, and for the last several years he has been heavily involved in a federally funded program to grow the pipeline of cyber security professionals across the country.
In addition to his administrative work, he is a prize-winning historian of American foreign relations. He has written extensively on the intersection of foreign relations and culture, with a primary focus on the ways that nation-states try to tell their stories to foreign peoples to facilitate their foreign policy objectives, a practice commonly known as public diplomacy.
