Elevating graduate and professional education
The University of Georgia is rolling out an initiative to increase the enrollment of graduate students by offering new funding opportunities, innovative interdisciplinary programs and a wider array of professional development opportunities.
Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs and Provost Pamela Whitten noted that graduate students are drawn to UGA for the opportunity to be mentored by faculty members who are at the leading edge of their fields, and those same graduate students advance knowledge and discovery through their independent work.
“Extraordinary graduate programs and a thriving research enterprise go hand-in-hand,” Whitten said, “and both are on an upward trajectory at UGA.”
