Diversity and Inclusion
At the Law School, we embrace the University of Georgia's commitment 'to be a diverse campus that is enriched and informed by the personal, cultural, and intellectual differences of its students, faculty, staff, and visitors.' That commitment forms part of our mission and is reflected in our motto - Prepare. Connect. Lead. We prepare future professionals who are reflective of, and sensitive to, an increasingly diverse society. We connect those future professionals with those who preceded them and helped to build the bridges they now cross. Through this work, we help to produce leaders of bench, bar, business and government equipped to serve in an increasingly globalized society. We hope that this webpage, developed collaboratively by members of our community, informs you about the many resources available on campus and facilitates the conversations essential to promoting values of diversity, inclusion and belonging.
