As the land grant, flagship institution for the State of Georgia, the University plays several important roles across the state. Our faculty members are key for each of these roles.
- Teaching – everywhere we stop we meet graduates of the University of Georgia. UGA is beloved all across the state and our graduates are in leadership positions across all sectors of the economy. They all tell us of the impact their faculty had on them as they earned their degrees at UGA.
- Research – across multiple sectors of the Georgia economy, from agriculture to advanced manufacturing to services, research by faculty and students at the University of Georgia drives innovation all across the state.
- Service – is key for land grant institutions like UGA. At every stop on the tour, we meet the local county extension agents and others who work closely with community leaders, business owners, and families to provide support and access to the vast UGA resources that are available to every citizen of the state.
