Welcome to West Georgia
The mission of the University of West Georgia (UWG) is to enable students, faculty, and staff to realize their full potential through academic engagement, supportive services, professional development, and a caring, student-centered community. UWG is committed to academic excellence and to community engagement, offering high-quality undergraduate, graduate, and community programs on-campus, off-campus, and online.
Wide World of West
Our differences make us who we are. Over 12,800 students from 45 states and 74 countries are making their mark at UWG. (And that's before you get to our more than 940 faculty and staff members who come from exotic places worldwide or our network of 60,000 alumni worldwide.)
At the University of West Georgia, we transform lives and change perceptions, constantly challenging ourselves to ask "What if?" and refusing to accept that possibilities are limited. We embrace diversity. We value community. We drive growth. We engage — as students, faculty, and staff — and work collectively to be the best comprehensive university in America, sought after as the best place to work, learn and succeed.
This is the land of opportunity and discovery. If you ask us, the stars shine just a little brighter here — in the sky and among us.
