Why I Give: Lynn Bailey

Lynn Bailey

Name: Lynn Bailey

Position: Flatt Foods and Nutrition Professor and head of the Department of Foods and Nutrition

Years at UGA: 9

Beneficiary of her gift to the university: President’s Venture Fund, Foods and Nutrition Fund, Food Science and Technology Fund

Why she gives: “I give to provide funding for events that enable graduate students, faculty and alumni to interact outside of the classroom to enhance professional mentorship. When graduate students are asked during their exit interview what the highlight of their graduate program was, the answer is always ‘the opportunity to get to know faculty.’ In addition, funding visiting scientists fosters new collaborative scholarly endeavors with faculty and graduate students in the foods and nutrition department.”
