Living in the Community

The Division of Student Affairs enhances the learning environment for students by stimulating the learning process, integrating in-class and out-of-class experiences, promoting an environment conducive to growth and discovery, and facilitating intellectual, spiritual, social, occupational, physical, cultural, and emotional development. To facilitate learning for UGA students, we identified areas to promote student growth and development, which are integrated throughout the Division. Students who engage in our programs and services experience structured curricula that advance their knowledge in the key areas of: Leadership, Intercultural Competence, Cognitive Development, Interpersonal Skills, Self-Esteem, Collaboration, Healthy Behavior and Social Responsibility. UGA also offers a highly-regarded Honors Program and ample opportunities for undergraduate students to engage in research projects with premier faculty. Students can pursue educational experiences around the world by participating in one of our many study abroad and exchange programs.
