Academic Partnerships and Initiatives

How can the Division of Student Affairs partner with you to support student success and your work as a faculty member at UGA?

Student Affairs seeks to create a more holistic student experience by advancing the integration of the student-centered work of faculty, academic and student affairs staff.
