The Graduate School aims to promote excellence in graduate education by recruiting top students to the University of Georgia. While striving to increase overall enrollment, the Graduate School also seeks to promote diversity by encouraging enrollment of students from historically underrepresented groups and qualified programs abroad.
Every effort is made to facilitate a smooth transition for new students through their graduation as well as heighten the graduate experience of all students. The Graduate School sponsors academic, social, and professional programs and activities, and serves as an advocate for students and faculty.
