Instruction Units

Advising at the University of Georgia is decentralized, and each school and college has an advising office for students within that school or college. Faculty and professional academic advisors help undergraduate students understand the options and opportunities for academic programs of study, degree requirements, academic resources, and course selection. Academic advisors engage students in meaningful relationships designed to support and encourage a challenging and successful undergraduate education.

Judy Iakovou is Director of Academic Advising and coordinates advising efforts across campus, including the Academic Advising Coordinating Council (AACC), the Academic Advising Awards and Advising Workshops. Judy is working with units within OVPI, including Curriculum Systems, Registrar and others, as well as with advising offices in UGA's schools and colleges, to improve advising efforts and support across campus.

To succeed, students in the 21st century must be able to tackle real-world problems and use critical thinking and problem solving skills to solve multifaceted problems that do not have simple solutions. A growing body of research demonstrates that experiential learning enhances student learning, success in the classroom, on-time graduation, and transition to the workforce. Thus, the University of Georgia will require all undergraduate students to engage in hands-on, experiential learning within a domestic or global setting as a graduation requirement.

Many UGA students already engage in experiential learning, and ensuring that all students do so prior to graduation will take the world-class learning experience that UGA provides to an even higher level. The Experiential Learning Requirement will be effective for incoming first-year students as soon as all individual school and college plans are approved, no earlier than fall 2016.

Often called “learning by doing,” service-learning courses connect academic concepts learned in the classroom with real needs in the community. Students in service-learning courses are involved in a variety of projects that yield real benefits for community partners, such as conducting community-based research projects, tutoring at-risk children, alleviating hunger, conducting after school programs, and creating economic and community development plans both locally and globally. Through these and many other service-learning projects, instruction is connected to public service and provides opportunities for students to engage with important societal issues in a scholarly way.

The UGA Office of Service-Learning (OSL) supports academic service-learning and community engagement initiatives designed to enhance students’ civic and academic learning, promote engaged research that is responsive to community needs, and contribute to the public good through mutually beneficial community-university partnerships. The OSL reports jointly to the Vice President for Public Service and Outreach and the Vice President for Instruction.
