Fall 2014 Address
To our new faculty, staff, and students, Welcome. To our returning faculty, staff, and students, Welcome Back. I am very excited about the start of the 2014-2015 academic year.
While we face some challenges in becoming all that we can be, we have tremendous opportunities to build upon our core strengths as an institution. Some of the areas I plan to focus on during the 2014-2015 academic year are the following:
- Enhance our distinctive place of learning—our campus—to become recognized as the premier academic campus in the south-metro area.
- Focus on fostering an organization that continues to attract and retain a diverse faculty and staff.
- Provide more professional development opportunities for faculty and staff.
- Build stronger communication lines between the campus community and leadership team.
UGA Griffin offers our students an outstanding education. Every student has the opportunity for mentoring and personal interaction with faculty and researchers on the Griffin campus. The return of our students for a new academic year infuses the campus with a strong, vibrant presence. Let’s take the opportunity during Welcome Week to welcome our students, both new and returning.
I look forward to working alongside such an amazing group of dedicated, talented, and energetic faculty, staff, and administrators. There is much to do in creating the campus of tomorrow but I know you are ready to meet the challenges of a new year and embrace the incredible opportunities awaiting us. I will end with one of my favorite quotes, “Synergy — the bonus that is achieved when things work together harmoniously” Mark Twain, American author and humorist.
Please let me know if I can be of assistance to you during the upcoming year. Thank you for all you do and the sacrifices you make for the students we serve.

Assistant Vice President for Academic Affairs
