For the first time in its history, the University of Georgia surpassed a half-billion dollars in research and development spending in fiscal year 2022. With total expenditures of $545.6 million — representing a jump of more than 10% from the previous year.

Fueled by strong increases in sponsored research funding from multiple federal agencies, the one-year jump of $51.7 million is UGA’s largest single-year increase in recent history and the first time since FY2017 that R&D expenditures have grown by more than 10% in a single year.

The College of Education also experienced significant increases in R&D expenditures in fiscal year 2022:

  • Overall research expenditures up 11% over FY21
  • $5M in federal expenditures, up 29% over FY21
“I want to thank our faculty, staff, and graduate students who contributed to our success in these expenditures,” said Scott Ardoin, associate dean for research and graduate education. “These resources are certain to improve upon the quality of training and research conducted within and beyond the College, addressing a diverse set of issues, including improving upon the quality of instructional and assessment procedures within elementary classrooms, understanding the barriers to STEM education for Native Americans, and evaluating the impact of concussions on driver safety.”
