Whether you are joining Georgia Regents University as an incoming freshman or completing the requirements for an advanced certificate or professional degree, it is my pleasure to welcome you.
Our faculty and staff are committed to ensuring that your time at Georgia’s newest public student-centered research university and only public academic health center will provide you with a world-class education and a range of experiences and opportunities that will rival the very best our nation has to offer.
You are here at a very exciting time. Although the fall semester marks the start of our first full academic year as GRU, you are part of a university that was established in 1828.
We are a community of teachers, discoverers, and healers. You - our students - are the most important members of that community, and on behalf of all our faculty and staff, I wish you the best of luck in your studies.
I salute your commitment to the pursuit of knowledge and discover, and thank you for entrusting your education to Georgia Regents University.
