“To expand diversity training opportunities on campus and to expand initiatives focused on the recruitment and success of under-represented faculty and students,” University of Georgia President Jere Morehead said in the "State of the University" speech this week.
The university will also conduct a campus-wide climate survey about diversity-related issues.
White-tailed deer fawns, by their youth and size, are an easy target for most coyotes.
Researchers in Georgia, Alabama and South Carolina hope to figure out how to protect the fawn, to some extent, by studying coyote behavior.
“We would potentially try to see if we could make alterations to the environment to change how coyotes are behaving thereby influencing the probability that they will prey on fawns,” says Dr. Michael Chamberlain, a professor of Wildlife Ecology at the University of Georgia.
The University of Georgia libraries have improved access to more than 30 hours of videotaped interviews with former President Richard Nixon.
The university says the videotapes had been largely unseen outside of the group that produced them in 1983.
The videos were donated to the UGA libraries nearly 15 years ago by Jesse Raiford, president of Raiford Communications, who said he wanted them to be housed at an educational institution that would make them accessible to the public.
Freshman Nick Chubb ran for a career-high 266 yards and two touchdowns, and No. 13 Georgia overcame an injury to starting quarterback Hutson Mason to beat 20th-ranked Louisville 37-14 in the Belk Bowl on Tuesday night.
Chubb averaged 8 yards per carry and the Bulldogs (10-3) piled up 301 yards rushing against the nation's second-best run defense.
Mason threw for 149 yards and a touchdown before leaving with blurred vision in the second quarter with the Bulldogs ahead 20-7. He was replaced by Brice Ramsey, whose primary duty was to hand the ball off to Chubb.
Faculty and staff members at the University of Georgia want to beef up the language in the school’s non-discrimination policy.
The University Council has sent a recommendation to UGA president Jere Morehead to add the phrase “gender identity” to its non-discrimination and anti-harassment policy.
Management Information Systems professor Janine Aronson has worked at UGA for more than 20 years. When she came out as transgender several years ago, she says she got support from the administration, but she believes it is time to add the language to university policy.
With an framed, autographed Herschel Walker jersey behind him, retiring University of Georgia president Dr. Michael Adams talks with WABE's Denis O'Hayer in the president's office in Athens on June 11, 2013.
On June 30, 2013, Dr. Michael Adams will retire as president of the University of Georgia.
In his 16 years at the helm, Adams has often sparked controversy with some of his decisions in both academics and athletics.
Part 2 of his conversation with WABE's Denis O'Hayer focused on athletics; with thoughts on Vince Dooley, the role of athletics at the university, and perennial Bulldog nemesis Steve Spurrier--among other things.
"If we want to stay competitive for recruiting top faculty, it's essential that we catch up in this regard. This is not about leading the pack, it's about us catching up with what other universities are doing," says Dr. Janet Frick, with UGA's Human Resources Committee.
The Board of Regents of the University System of Georgia unanimously approved hiring Jere Morehead as the 22nd president of the University of Georgia today. Morehead has spent most of his career at the university and has served as senior vice president for academic affairs and provost at UGA since 2010.
Today is December 5, and if we were to turn Georgia's clock back 71 years to this date in 1941, we'd find the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools announcing that it was withdrawing its accreditation for ten Georgia colleges.
Georgia State University associate professor of History Dr. Clifford Kuhn joins WABE's Steve Goss to talk about the so-called "Cocking Affair".
