Brenau inks articulation agreement with Lanier Technical College

This past spring, Brenau University and Lanier Technical College signed a program articulation agreement in an effort to make it easier for Lanier students majoring in business to transfer to Brenau.

Under the agreement, students in Lanier Tech’s business management program can now transfer to Brenau to earn their bachelor’s in business administration or organizational leadership while keeping credit hours earned at Lanier.

“This really is another pathway for deserving students who have a desire to earn their bachelor’s degree to stay
within their community,” says Nathan Goss, assistant vice president for recruiting at Brenau. “This process will make it much more efficient and will streamline the application process.”

Pennie Eddy, chair of undergraduate business programs at Brenau, played an important role in this agreement. About six years ago, while employed by both Brenau and Lanier Tech, she worked to create articulation agreements between the two schools.

“I started inviting Brenau accounting instructors to Lanier Tech for different meetings,” Eddy says. “They would invite the students from Lanier Tech to Brenau for different accounting functions.”

That bridge set the groundwork for the current agreement. Goss and Donna Brinson, vice president for academic affairs at Lanier Tech, began working last year on the program articulation agreement, and Brenau formed a committee to hammer out the details.

While the articulation agreement is written specifically for Lanier Tech, students from any of Georgia’s 22 technical colleges can transfer their credits to Brenau, provided the college has a program similar to that at Lanier.
