Mary Ann Moran advising

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.

The Office of Academic Advising Services coordinates advising efforts across campus, including the Academic Advising Coordinating Council (AACC), the Academic Advising Awards and Advising Workshops and works 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.

It's a simple concept - when you learn by doing, you learn to thrive. You learn more. You learn beyond subject matter – you also learn about yourself.

At UGA, we couldn’t agree more. We’re passionate about the promise of Experiential Learning, and we believe it’s a foundational part of the college experience and beyond. We believe hands-on experiences inform, transform, and unlock the true potential of higher education and prepare students to thrive in an ever-changing world.

Experiences outside the classroom are part of a powerful learning cycle that expands, stretches and enhances academic foundations to create a whole new level of awareness and understanding. It’s a proving ground where students commit to exploring, discovering, and defining how what they learn will shape who they become and what they do next.

As a leader in higher education we’re uniquely able to open virtually any door or blaze any path to create programs that enhance every field of study. We help students find and nurture the powerful connections that make experiences count.

We’re committed to Experiential Learning, and we’re invested in doing it right for every student. Our Office of University Experiential Learning ensures access to challenging and engaging experiential programs. At UGA, Experiential Learning is designed to deliver impact – for our communities, and above all, for our students. Experiential Learning can elevate a student’s trajectory, enhance  competencies and enable opportunities, now and for years to come – that’s why it’s a (required) part of every UGA degree.

Because at UGA, we believe experience is key. It’s the catalyst that empowers students to thrive.

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.
