News Releases

News releases are disseminated to media daily. Through a news management system, we select the most appropriate media for the news release. We also send all UGA news releases to those media representatives who have requested them. We maintain a news archive to which all news releases are posted. To access the archive, see news.uga.edu. If you would like to be added to the media list to receive all news releases, call 706/542-1024.

A University of Georgia archive of all news releases is maintained at news.uga.edu.
