Morehead welcomes students to Dawg Camp Innovate

President Jere W. Morehead met with 20 incoming students for Dawg Camp Innovate, a new program focused on entrepreneurship and innovation. Announced at the president’s State of the University Address in January, Dawg Camp Innovate is a weeklong immersion program that helps students launch new ideas and connect with local entrepreneurs and Athens nonprofits. The program, along with Launch Pad (a first-year living-learning community focused on innovation and entrepreneurship) and the Student Center for Entrepreneurship, is growing the pipeline of student entrepreneurship at UGA and contributing to a thriving innovation ecosystem.

Dawg Camp Innovate is part of UGA’s nationally renowned Dawg Camp extended orientation program run by the Center for Leadership and Service.
