The University of North Georgia Press is a department under the Office of the Vice President of Leadership & Global Engagement at The University of North Georgia. Our offices are located on the third floor of the Chestatee Building, Rooms 385 and 359, on the UNG Dahlonega Campus, right off of Dahlonega’s Historic Square.
The University of North Georgia Press, a scholarly, peer-reviewed press, is an extension of our sponsoring university, University of North Georgia. Our primary function is to promote education and research, with a special emphasis on local and global cultures. Culture is defined in the broadest sense of the term to include intellectual and artistic activity as well as shared community. Our partnership with the university provides a learning environment for students to gain real life experiences in publishing and marketing.
Our structure comprises two boards, an advisory and a faculty. The Faculty Board has final approval over manuscript acquisitions and projects, after the Advisory Board has reached all its press decisions. Also, we are a service-learning press. As such, students attending UNG publishing classes and serving as press interns participate in all aspects of the press’s business. In this way, we offer our students real life experiences in publishing and marketing.
