Atlanta community leaders ‘Learn and Connect’ with UGA

Michelle Cook, vice provost for diversity and inclusion at the University of Georgia, greets Suzanne Diggs-Wilborn, vice president for college success of Achieve Atlanta, prior to the kickoff luncheon of a “Learn and Connect” event that brought representatives from 18 Atlanta Community Based Organizations to the UGA campus on Feb. 20-21. Representatives from College AIM, the Latin American Association, and the Boys and Girls Club of Greater Atlanta were also among the organizations that attended the event.

“Learn and Connect” is an initiative of the Office of the President to further the university’s reach and help underrepresented and underserved communities with college access and knowledge about UGA. The event was sponsored by the Office of Undergraduate Admissions and included opportunities for community partners to learn about the university’s recruitment methods, support for students and how students foster community on campus.
