How can the Division of Student Affairs partner with you to support your work at UGA?
Academic Partnerships and Initiatives serves as a nexus between colleagues at UGA and the 18 departments of UGA's Division of Student Affairs -- including Student Affairs' many natural laboratories, facilities, co-curricular programs, and university-wide Centers. API seeks to enhance and enrich the tripartite mission of UGA by building mutually-beneficial relationships between units that have not historically worked together, AND by innovating how we employ the readily available resources within the University.
If this intrigues you, keep reading. To get started, let's first look at a few numbers.
DID YOU KNOW?
We partner with UGA faculty in a variety of ways to support the research mission of the University of Georgia. We serve as Co-PI's on NSF, NIH, and other sponsored projects. The Division of Student Affairs is a principal laboratory for research at the university. Contact Dr. Michele Howard for more information about how we can partner with you to advance high-impact scholarship or partner to pursue external funding.

What is the Faculty Fellows Program?
Launching in late Summer 2017, the new Faculty Fellows Program in the Division of Student Affairs is a year-long faculty development program providing an opportunity for selected faculty members to integrate co-curricular programming and campus programs into their teaching, research, and public service work, while also becoming recognized campus leaders in experiential learning and campus engagement.
The Faculty Fellows program is supported by the Office of the Vice President for Student Affairs, and designed to enhance connections between in-class experiences and out-of-class experiences. The Fellows Program highlights the Division’s commitment to enhancing student learning through the creation of seamless academic partnerships and integrated curricular and co‐curricular transformational, high impact learning experiences.
The Division of Student Affairs Fellows Program provides an opportunity for faculty to serve in a fellow position within the Division focused on enhancing existing and identifying new Student Affairs/Academic Affairs partnerships that enrich academic degree programs and instructional initiatives, foster seamless learning opportunities for students, and ensure high‐quality academic partnerships between Student Affairs and academic college or targeted academic affairs units at the University of Georgia.
All UGA faculty are invited to apply, including tenure-track, instructional, and public service faculty.
Stay tuned for more application details to be announced in Spring, 2017! Anticipated application deadline in early May, 2017.
