A team of faculty and students from multiple disciplines are working together to design, build, and deploy a cube satellite with help from NASA.

The University of Georgia Small Satellite Research Laboratory (SSRL) was recently selected by NASA and the Air Force to design, test and launch two cube satellites. These CubeSats will perform image analysis from low Earth orbit, delivering critical information about our coastal regions. The team is comprised of undergraduate students and faculty from Franklin College of Arts and Sciences and the College of Engineering and will work in partnership with NASA. They will share their personal stories of how, with a myriad of financial support from the university, their dreams have become reality as the SSRL will be the be the first space program at UGA. 

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.
