UGA's University Council to Hold Called Meeting

The University of Georgia’s University Council, a faculty, student, and staff body, has called a meeting on August 12 to discuss the University’s response to the coronavirus pandemic. WUGA’s Martin Matheny reports.

On the agenda will be the creation of a special COVID-19 response committee, as well as the endorsement of a joint resolution from the faculty senates of the Franklin College of Arts and Sciences and the College of Education, which is in places critical of the institution’s - and the University System of Georgia’s – response so far.

That special meeting was announced yesterday after more than 20 members of the council signed a petition to call for it.

Martin Matheny is WUGA's Program Director and a host and producer of our local news program 'Athens News Matters.' He started at WUGA in 2012 as a part-time classical music host and still hosts WUGA's longest-running local program 'Night Music' which is heard on WUGA and GPB Classical. He lives in Normaltown with his wife, Shaye and dog, Murphy.
