UGA’s commitment to rural Georgia promoted

Units across campus collaborated to launch a new page on the It Starts With Georgia website focused on the university’s commitment to supporting rural communities and creating statewide connections.  

The site is a compilation of resources and information designed to benefit rural communities by promoting economic development, providing training and encouraging research partnerships. The site also features stories detailing successful partnerships from across Georgia. 

The It Starts With Georgia website was created to promote UGA resources and partnerships available to all Georgians. These programs and resources helped contribute to the $5.7 billion impact the university had on the state in 2017.
