The University of Georgia will celebrate Honors Week 2021 with a Virtual Celebration of Academic Excellence that will premiere on the university’s YouTube page at 2 p.m. on April 21.
Honors Week is an annual UGA tradition that dates back to the 1930s, when then-Chancellor S.V. Sanford dedicated a day to recognize outstanding students.
Hosted by the Office of the Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs and Provost, the Virtual Celebration of Academic Excellence will honor the winners of the 2020-2021 awards for teaching excellence, research and public service.
“The Virtual Celebration of Academic Excellence will recognize extraordinary contributions to teaching, research and service at the University of Georgia,” said Provost S. Jack Hu. “I extend my sincere appreciation and congratulations to all of this year’s honorees.”
