UGA faculty and staff who are teaching or conducting research and outreach about alleviating poverty will be able to network with UGA colleagues who share their interests at the first OneAthens@UGA Symposium on April 9 from 1 to 4 p.m. at the Georgia Center for Continuing Education Conference Center and Hotel. Launched this semester, OneAthens@UGA is the new network of UGA faculty, staff and students promoting collaborative interactions to address poverty.
