of Business and Public Affairs to Release First Issue of the Southeast
Georgia Coastal Monitor This Week
For BBA student Jessin Oueslati, this is the final
project of his senior year. For the Southeast Georgia (SEGA) Joint
Development Authority, this is the beginning of much-needed research
to help promote viability of economic development for the six-county region
of Brantley, Camden, Charlton, Glynn, McIntosh, and Wayne.
Scheduled for release at the end of April, the inaugural
issue of Southeast Georgia Coastal Monitor will serve as an
introduction to the economy of the southeast Georgia coast, according

and the data cover the past 10 years. The summer issue will provide
an overview of the industrial makeup of the region. Once that core
information is presented, our research will turn to specific
The SEGA Joint Development Authority commissioned the
series of quarterly economic monitoring reports. "The Monitor
will be available online in .pdf form. The annual summary, which
will come out in January, may also be available in print. That is
still to be determined," Dr. Mathews said.
The inaugural issue was researched and authored by a
team of three: Jessin Oueslati, an undergraduate research assistant
in the School of Business and Public Affairs, Dr. Craig Fleisher,
Dean of the School, and Dr. Mathews.
"The Monitor is another example of how our
business courses, experiential learning focus, and community
engagement come together to enhance regional economic development
while enriching our students' learning experience and engaging both
students and faculty in applied research and service
activities," Dr. Fleisher concluded.
