What Others Are Saying

We constantly put forth our best effort to make a positive difference in the communities we serve and in the world at large. Our work is never done, but the continuing importance of doing the right thing is reaffirmed when others recognize our efforts. Our employees are proud of our commitment to the communities where we operate and we are proud of our dedication to safety, health and the environment. We continue to raise the bar.

Vulcan Materials Company received the Award of Excellence from the Board of the Georgia Independent College Association (GICA) in November 2017. For fifty years, Vulcan has demonstrated its commitment to students attending private colleges across Georgia through donations totaling over $500,000. 2017 also marks the anniversary of their signature program, “The Vulcan Teaching Excellence Award.” Nearly 400 professors have been honored for their commitment to teaching excellence and student learning.

“The Vulcan Teaching Excellence Award is a remarkable program that colleges use to honor and encourage high-quality teaching,” stated Dr. Susanna Baxter, GICA president. “Over the past 25 years, Vulcan’s commitment to teaching has become institutionalized. Faculty cherish being nominated and selected by their peers and students for this prestigious award.”
