In February 2019, Gov. Brian P. Kemp signed an executive order to establish the Georgians for Refuge, Action, Compassion, and Education, or GRACE, Commission, and in January 2020, first lady Marty Kemp and the GRACE Commission, in collaboration with the Department of Administrative Services , developed Human Trafficking Awareness Training for state of Georgia employees, which includes those at UGA.

To support this statewide effort, all UGA faculty and staff are encouraged to take this voluntary training course, which is available in the Professional Education Portal at
