This page contains each of Vice President Wilson’s monthly messages dating back to the initial Student Affairs Enewsletter sent in February 2014. Enjoy!
At one point in our lives, we have all been the new person. Whether starting a new job, joining a new group, or back to our first days of school, we can all appreciate the challenging process in finding our place in a new setting.
This time of transition is especially true for our students – and our staff. Transitioning to college can be a huge adjustment for many students and one that may only begin at the official Orientation. I am excited about the work of UGA’s new Council on the First-Year Experience, which is looking at additional ways to support student transition across the entire first year and beyond, helping students find meaningful connections and pathways to their futures.
This week we are also launching a new year-long on-boarding process for Student Affairs staff. As with students, we need to be intentional in our support, providing staff with the best opportunity to succeed in their new roles.
After all, we all know what it’s like to be new.
