In recognition of the University’s anniversary as the birthplace of public higher education in America, the UGA Alumni Association and the Student Alumni Association host a weeklong celebration. The highlight of the week is the annual 17th annual Founders Day Lecture, hosted in partnership with the Office of the President, Provost’s Office and UGA Emeriti Scholars. The lecture is held in the UGA Chapel and has become a Founders Day tradition, drawing alumni, students, faculty, esteemed guests and members of the community.
The lecture will be “Colonization and its Discontents,” by William Underwood Eiland, Ph.D., director of the Georgia Museum of Art. Open to the public.
For all UGA students who attend the lecture, free Jittery Joe’s hot chocolate will be provided by the Student Alumni Association.
All Student Alumni Association events during Founders Week benefit from support from the Office of the President.
