Staff Spotlights

In UGA Student Affairs, each and every staff member is more than "just" their title or position in the division. The contributions they make and the impact they have when inspiring students to engage meaningfully, grow intellectually, and build their character goes beyond just their job description. Staff Spotlights were created to recognize and celebrate the stories of the incredible staff that work in UGA Student Affairs. Nominated staff are interviewed and we're honored to share their stories in the Staff Matters email newsletter and here on the website.
