B.A., J.D., University of Georgia
Gregory L. Roseboro was recently named director of diversity programs at the University of Georgia School of Law. This represents an expansion of duties for Roseboro as he will remain the associate director of admissions, a post he has held since 2000.
In his new role, Roseboro will focus his attention on the various diversity issues facing the law school as well as legal education in general. While he will continue assisting with admissions, he will also be involved in student affairs, academic support, alumni relations and community outreach. Key areas include helping to increase the diversity of students, faculty and staff in addition to developing new initiatives to support diversity and cultural differences at the law school and to coordinate efforts with the university's Office of Institutional Diversity.
Roseboro also serves as the adviser to the Davenport-Benham Black Law Students Association, the Asian Law Students Association, the Hispanic Law Students Association and the Outlaws student organization.
He previously served for five years as a settlement negotiator with State Farm and the United Services Automobile Association before going into private law practice in Athens. Roseboro initially joined the law school's staff in 1994 as assistant director of admissions, student affairs and legal career services.
Roseboro earned both his bachelor's degree in criminal justice and his law degree from UGA. While an undergraduate at Georgia, he excelled as a mid-distance runner. He was selected as team co-captain and was named to the All-SEC and U.S. Junior Team for the 800 meters.
A strong believer in giving back to the community, Roseboro plays an active leadership role in civic affairs and is the pastor of the Piney Grove Baptist Church in Comer.
