On Saturday, March 7, EITS will be conducting maintenance of the University network. As a result, there will be intermittent outages of campus Internet access and campus information systems. Because these outages will be unpredictable, the community should assume that network services will be unavailable from 6:00 a.m. until midnight on March 7.
This maintenance is necessary to support an expansion and upgrade of the network that will allow EITS to continue to provide ample bandwidth and Internet capacity for the University in future years.
President Morehead noted the contributions of graduate students in his 2020 State of the University address
President Morehead noted the contributions of graduate students in his 2020 State of the University address, saying “Growing graduate education is another critical part of this strategic direction. Our graduate students bring fresh ideas, energy, and a drive to discover, and they provide critical support for the research, scholarship, and creative activities of our talented faculty. They also teach and mentor our undergraduate students. Growth in research, innovation, and entrepreneurship is simply not possible, at any meaningful scale, without growth in graduate education.” The State of the University was delivered on January 29 in the Chapel.
As Georgia’s flagship university, we are committed to the economic vitality of our state. Our research creates innovative technology that lays the foundation for new companies and makes existing organizations more profitable. We prepare students to be leaders in their fields, and we provide training that helps entrepreneurs and small businesses thrive. We help communities revitalize their downtowns, develop their workforces and attract industry and jobs. https://itstartswith.uga.edu/
