Welcome to the University of Georgia Mary Frances Early College of Education.
In February 2020, the UGA College of Education was officially named in honor of Mary Frances Early, UGA's first African American graduate and a pioneering music educator who played an integral role in the campaign for racial equality in Georgia and across the South. Through this naming, we commemorate Early's indelible impact at UGA as well as her distinguished career in music education.
