Friend-Making Board Launched


UGA launched a board of visitors in October, with an inaugural class of 35 members. Made up of community leaders throughout Georgia, the UGA Board of Visitors is charged with helping to build relationships between the state’s flagship university and elected officials, business leaders and community organizations. Members serve a two-year term in which they will have the opportunity to hear from some of the university’s most celebrated faculty members, its top researchers and most promising students. Board of Visitors events are funded by the Arch Foundation for the University of Georgia, which supports the university through volunteer leadership and assistance in development and fundraising activities.
