Ready for Launch

This spring we announced a bold new 2025 plan for UGA Student Affairs focused on three core strategies: 1) Improve student development of essential skills; 2) Increase meaningful student engagement on campus and in the community; and 3) Increase student well-being and success across the educational experience.

With all that has happened in our world since spring, the importance of these core strategies has been affirmed in countless ways. Today we are ready to launch!

This month, we have opened two new departments—a new Student Transitions office to provide dedicated support for key times of student transition across the student experience, as well as a new department of Engagement, Leadership, and Service, to expand engagement and infuse leadership and service across all types of student involvement.

We will also soon be launching new collaborative teams across Student Affairs and the campus, including a new student learning collaborative, well-being network, digital engagement, data, and IT teams, student organization advisors, and a student transitions group. Many of you will be asked to join one or more of these teams, and I am grateful for the insights and leadership I know you will bring.

Making our 2025 plan come alive depends on all of us working together creatively and energetically. These are challenging times, but I am fully confident we can continue to embrace the opportunities ahead together for the benefit of UGA students and the betterment of our world.
