"The State of Our University is strong."

That’s University of Georgia President Jere Morehead, who delivered his annual State of the University address Wednesday afternoon. Morehead touched on a wide array of topics, including record-high graduation rates, a 95% retention rate, 495 million dollars in research funding and more. But he also announced additional resources to bolster the UGA community.

“How can we make the University of Georgia even stronger? Today, I am announcing several measures that firmly answer that question,” Morehead said. “First, I am thrilled to announce a new five-year, $6 million initiative to expand active learning on our campus.”

The President is also committing one million dollars to mental health needs, which he said have increased during the pandemic. Additional funding will go toward graduate student scholarships and recruiting.

Morehead also touted UGA’s sports successes.   

“Current and former Bulldogs brought home 13 medals from the Summer Olympic and Paralympic games in Tokyo. Our equestrian team captured a National Championship and our football team thrilled the Bulldog Nation, securing an undefeated regular season, a victory in the Orange Bowl and the National Championship in Indianapolis. Our first in 41 years."
