GAINESVILLE, Ga. -

A north Georgia university is exploring the idea of adding a Florida campus.

Brenau University President Ed Schrader says the Gainesville, Ga.-based school has plans to expand with a campus in Jacksonville, Fla.

The Times newspaper of Gainesville reports that Schrader made the comments Thursday at a meeting of the Greater Hall Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors.

The Jacksonville campus would become the Georgia school's first out-of-state venture if it becomes a reality.

Brenau already has a small presence at the Naval Submarine Base Kings Bay in south Georgia, about 40 miles north of Jacksonville.

Schrader said market surveys in the area show a need for continuing education in nursing, and graduate education in teacher education and business. He said the idea is in the very early stages.
