The College of Education hosts events for alumni throughout the year, both at our Athens campus and across the state. Through evening receptions, homecoming events, panels and donor recognition events, the College gives alumni many reasons to stay connected after graduation. If you are interested in hosting an event, or being involved with alumni in your area, please email us for more information.

Alumni Panels

The College of Education, in conjunction with our Office of Student Engagement, hosts regular alumni panels, giving our students a chance to learn first-hand from graduates now working in the field. These panels take place throughout the year and are offered for all degrees. We are always looking for alumni who are willing to lend their professional insights and expertise for the benefit of our students — and we can even set up a video conference for out-of-town professionals.

Alumni Receptions

Some events stay in Athens, while other occasions call for us to take our alumni events on the road. Our alumni receptions are a chance for you to connect with other graduates and celebrate accomplishments within the College of Education. Recent events have taken place in Savannah, Rome, Lawrenceville, Atlanta, Macon, Albany and Athens. And a spring alumni reception, held at ESPN in advance of the annual Peabody Awards, brought alumni to ABC studios in Manhattan. Hosted by Tonya Harris Cornileus (MEd '04, PhD '10), vice president of learning and organizational development at ESPN, guests mingled on the 23rd floor and caught a stunning view of the New York City skyline.

Dean's Club

Alumni and friends of the College who donate $1,500 or more each year are part of the Dean's Club, a select group of donors who represent the top tier of the College's supporters. Donors at this level also become members of the UGA President's Club; this includes a fall reception before a home football game to recognize donors.
