Right Next to Us

We recently hosted a retreat with the Student Affairs Leadership Team, which includes directors from all 19 Student Affairs departments, along with our central administrative team. It is always great when we take some extended time together to reflect, share updates from our work across campus, and engage new ways we can help students to learn and flourish here at UGA.
 
As we talked together, I was reminded once again of the amazing resources we have in Student Affairs. So often, our greatest opportunities for learning and growth come through interacting with those directly around us. Our wonderful staff and incredible students offer endless chances for dialogue and insight. I encourage us all to value fully the people right next to us. As my grandmother used to say, “Sometimes when you are looking in one direction, if you turn around, your blessing is probably right next to you!”
 
The more we are open to each other, the more welcoming and connected our UGA community becomes.

Be well,
