What is a “Point of Pride”?

A Point of Pride can be any accomplishment for anyone affiliated with the University of West Georgia. Several examples could be:

  • The New West Campaign has surpassed $42.1 million raised towards its initial goal of $50 million. These gifts support student scholarships, programmatic activities and facilities at UWG. Virtually every area and aspect of the university is being supported and touched by the continued success of this effort.
  • Christopher Jett, an associate professor in the College of Science and Mathematics, was awarded the 2019 Early Career Award from the Association of Mathematics Teacher Educators. This prestigious, national award is given to a mathematics teacher educator who has made significant contributions to the field within the first decade of receiving the doctorate.
  • Senior Caleb Howard in the College of Arts and Humanities has been awarded a Gilman Scholarship to support his participation in the Department of English’s summer study abroad program in Spoleto, Italy. Howard is an English major with a creative writing minor. The Gilman Scholarship program is a national award designed to support students participating in immersive academic programs overseas.
  • Breanna Lee, an alumna of the school library media program in the College of Education, was named the Bartow County Media Specialist of the Year for 2018-19. She is the media specialist at Adairsville Middle School.

Accomplishments may be submitted from any college, school or department, and for a student, staff, faculty member or alumnus, ranging from personal to professional accomplishments, awards and honors.

We want to hear from you about your accomplishments, large and small. We want you to share accomplishments with us and we will let the world know all the amazing things that happen at the University of West Georgia.

These points of pride will be featured on the Office of the President's website.

To share accomplishments with us, all we need is a little bit of information.
