The Office of School Engagement serves as a bridge between the worlds of theory and practice in public education to improve the educational experiences of students and the professional lives of educators.

What We Do

  • We engage with the UGA Archway Partnership in education initiatives

Professional Development School District

Professional Development School District

We have a Professional Development School District partnership with Clarke County School District that includes 20 on-site courses, eight professors-in-residence, and more than 500 UGA students in the schools.

Experience UGA

Experience UGA

We support Experience UGA, a field trip initiative to bring all Clarke County students (P-12) to UGA's campus each year. Kindergarten students take a walking tour of campus led by Early Childhood Education majors and discuss shapes they see in buildings and surroundings.

Camp DIVE

Camp DIVE

Camp DIVE (Discover, Inquire, Voice, and Explore) is a partnership between the Clarke County School District (CCSD), the UGA College of Education, and the Athens-Clarke County community. The purpose of Camp DIVE is to provide an engaging and enriching summer experience for CCSD students in grades K-8 in order to prevent or diminish the well-known 'summer slide' phenomenon.
