Celebrate!

As I begin my third year as vice president at UGA, we have much to celebrate. 

Later this month UGA will welcome its most academically talented class of students ever. In wide numbers, UGA students report they are happy and fulfilled through their experiences at UGA. Students have more opportunities, in better facilities and through stronger programs, than ever before. Student graduation rates are at record highs. More than 90 percent of undergraduate seniors say that if they had to choose a college again, they would pick UGA.
 
These are all outstanding measures, and we should be proud of these accomplishments, but we know we can do even better. That’s why, over the past year, Student Affairs developed and launched a new five-year strategic plan, an ambitious course to further enhance the learning environment for UGA students.
 
Toward this plan we have forged new strategic partnerships, implemented a new student learning framework, promoted inclusion and equity, upgraded facilities, made new connections with alumni and community partners, and launched new websites and communications tools to promote our impact broadly.
 
While we rightfully celebrate our accomplishments over the past year, let us also commit to extend and advance our efforts on behalf of students, families, alumni, and other UGA community members in the year ahead. They deserve no less.
 
Thank you all so much for your extraordinary commitment to UGA and our amazing students. Together we are creating magic! Today and every day we have a long list of reasons to celebrate!
