As I look back on the fall semester now coming to a close, I am grateful for the extraordinary faculty and staff who make the University of Georgia the world-class institution it is. Amid the ongoing pandemic, the challenges set before us have been great, but the resolve of the UGA community has been even greater.

Faculty and staff have helped UGA earn recognition by U.S. News and World Report as the #16 public university in the nation, receive the Higher Education Excellence in Diversity Award for the eighth consecutive year, break records in student enrollment and achievement, and operate at the highest standards, all culminating in the graduation of more than 3,000 students during Commencement exercises tomorrow.

I sincerely appreciate the commitment of our faculty and staff to the University of Georgia, and I wish everyone the very best during this holiday season as we reflect and recharge in preparation for the new year.
