Collection Description

Historical Note

"The University of Georgia (UGA) is the oldest, largest, and most comprehensive educational institution in Georgia, and is moving to the forefront among public universities in the region and nation. Chartered by the Georgia General Assembly in 1785, UGA was the first university in America to be created by a state government, and the principles undergirding its charter helped lay the foundation for the American system of public higher education. UGA strives for excellence in three fundamental missions: providing students with outstanding instruction in classrooms and laboratories, providing Georgia citizens with information and assistance to improve quality of life in the state, and discovering new knowledge and information through advanced research.
