We're here for you, Georgia

This week, we'll be following UGA's recently reinstated New Faculty Tour. Forty new faculty members will take a five-day trek all around Georgia through 35 counties and nine cities learning all about the state's history, culture and economy. Throughout the week, faculty on the tour will guest blog about what they are learning, giving us a first-hand look at how UGA is impacting the state. The Tour will also show Georgia residents, businesses and government officials: We are here for you.

The tour will officially begin this afternoon on UGA's campus at the UGA Hotel and Conference Center and continue on to Gainesville. Among the businesses the group will visit this week are Jeamor Farms in Alto, the Georgia Power resource center in Atlanta, the Kia plant in West Point, a bioenergy production facility and the CSX rail yard in Waycross, Gulfstream Aerospace Corp. in Savannah and Plant Vogtle in Waynesboro. The focus of the visits will be how their work benefits economic development in Georgia.

For more information, follow us on Facebook at UGA Beyond the Arch.

The New Faculty Tour is supported by UGA's Office of the Provost, the UGA Alumni Association and the Office of the Vice President for Public Service and Outreach.
