2012 - 2013 Annual Report

2012-2013 Annual Report: We are UGA

The 2012-2013 Annual Report outlines the objectives of “Building on Excellence,” the strategic plan for UGA through the year 2020. That plan identifies a number of academic areas that are crucial to the continued success of the university, and while UGA receives generous state funding to support these initiatives, private financial support also will be crucial to the success of the plan.

50th anniversary of UGA’s desegregation

Celebrating Courage

UGA launched “Celebrating Courage,” its 50-day commemoration of the 50th anniversary of desegregation, in January, 2011 with a visit to the campus by Charlayne Hunter-Gault and Mary Frances Early (MEd ’62). Though a record snowstorm blanketed the area, closing the university for three days and forcing some events to be canceled, an opening reception for Hunter-Gault and the family of Hamilton Holmes, the first black students admitted to UGA, and Early, the first black student to earn a UGA degree, went on. Hunter-Gault also delivered a keynote speech in the Chapel as planned. Over the next two months, UGA would sponsor an array of events connected to desegregation. Among them: panel discussions and guest lecturers. “Through their eyes,” an art exhibit at the Tate Student Center, highlighted the diverse experiences of UGA students.
