From state-of-the-art facilities to numerous experiential learning opportunities, UGA offers students a rich learning experience.
Building a world-class learning environment is a top priority for the University of Georgia. That was the message delivered by UGA President Jere W. Morehead in his 2015 State of the University address Jan. 21 in the Chapel on North Campus.
“Let me begin with a simple but compelling truth: The state of the University of Georgia is stronger now than at any point in our 230-year history,” Morehead said. “The evidence for this statement can be found in the world-class learning environment created by our outstanding faculty, staff and students.”
Among the recent accomplishments at UGA:
- The most academically qualified class of first-year students in its history.
- Record high six-year graduation rate.
- An outstanding faculty that receives national accolades.
- A dedicated support staff.
- Construction of the state-of-the-art Science Learning Center.

- The upcoming dedication and opening of the Veterinary Medical Center.
- A new UGA in Washington facility.
- 25 more academic advisors hired.
- A new research assistantship program for undergraduates.
“As you can see, the University of Georgia is building a world-class learning environment where our students flourish academically,” Morehead said.
