“By bringing some of the state’s most distinguished citizens and leaders together with the stars of the University, the Board of Visitors will help UGA build and reinforce partnerships with the state it serves.”  

Abby Irby, UGA Class of '84 & UGA Foundation Trustee

The University of Georgia Board of Visitors serves to establish new relationships and strengthen long-standing ties between the state’s largest and most comprehensive research university and its elected officials, business leaders, and community organizations.

Members of the Board of Visitors are afforded the opportunity to explore UGA’s accomplishments in teaching, research, and service.  Participation on the Board will prepare each class to serve as ambassadors for the University in their career and community environments, carrying the mission of UGA with them in their daily lives.

Members serve a two-year term on the Board and are invited to attend three stimulating programs each year.  The programs are held in Atlanta. Occasionally, the program is held on the UGA campus.  Members are encouraged to bring guests to the meetings. 

Once his/her two-year term is complete, a member gains emeritus status and continues to be included in all meetings and activities of the Board of Visitors.
