Embark@UGA connects students with a Student Care and Outreach staff member who will work one-on-one with them to connect students with people and resources that will support their success and well-being during their time at UGA. Funding is available for unexpected financial hardships, help with the cost of mental health support, and many other situations.
Embark@UGA is a campus-based initiative to engage students who have experienced foster care, homelessness, and/or are at risk of homelessness. Embark@UGA connects students to an individualized support network designed to help them navigate UGA by connecting them with campus and community resources that are reflective of their unique needs and circumstances.
Embark@UGA is part of a statewide network that seeks to increase college access and retention for homeless or foster care youth in all University System of Georgia or Technical College System of Georgia institutions. For more information about the statewide network, click here.
