About the Press
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 Downtown Office Building, Rooms 337, 338, and 339, across from the Holly Theatre, right off of Dahlonega’s Historic Square.
Local is Global
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 editorial (mainly students) and a faculty. The Faculty Board has final approval over manuscript acquisitions and projects, after the Editorial Board has reached all its press decisions. This collaborative effort again offers our students real life experiences in publishing and marketing.
