A Year to Remember

As I reflect on my first academic year as vice president at UGA, what an amazing year!

I have always said that UGA has the best students in the world, but returning this year, I have had the chance to witness this anew. My interactions with the incredibly talented and accomplished students at UGA at times took my breath away. UGA students continue to astound and lead in every field. We are overwhelmingly blessed!

While we had our share of challenges as a campus this year, our gifted Student Affairs staff helped us overcome these hurdles. I believe that we have grown stronger this year as a university community and as a Student Affairs division. I am grateful to have such fabulous colleagues and partners dedicated to enhance the learning environment for students at UGA.

As I have taken part in commmencement ceremonies, including the Rite of Sankofa and Lavender Graduation, over the past few weeks, I have enjoyed countless stories of the successes of students and the impact of Student Affairs. These are the stories that make any year memorable. Today I am confident that UGA graduates are leaving fully prepared to go out into the world’s communities to make a difference. 

That makes me exceptionally proud to be back at UGA.
