Each January, the University of Georgia proudly celebrates its place in history as the birthplace of public higher education in America. A weeklong series of events, including the annual Founders Day Lecture, is held for the Athens and campus communities.
The lecture has become a Founders Day tradition, drawing alumni, students, faculty, esteemed guests and members of the community. The lecture is sponsored by the Office of the President, UGA Alumni Association and the Emeriti Scholars, a group of retired faculty members known for their teaching abilities, who continue to be involved in the university’s academic life through part-time teaching, research and service assignments.
