As the birthplace of higher education, the University of Georgia has fostered a tradition of academic excellence, intellectual inquiry, and service to others since 1785. For our graduates, Commencement is a beginning, the start of the next chapter in their lives. At Commencement, we celebrate the outstanding accomplishments of our students completing advanced degrees.
