The Engagement, Leadership and Service (ELS) department within the UGA Division of Student Affairs believes the student experience outside the classroom is a pivotal part of an enriched collegiate experience. Within the ELS, students can join and create student organizations, participate in and lead service opportunities, engage with leadership trainings and content, coordinate or attend multiple events, and so much more.
Student Activities within the ELS advises the University Union Programming Board and Homecoming Committee student organizations. We also implement other special events and programs throughout the year, such as Film on the Fifty and watch parties.
The UGA Office of Service-Learning (OSL) supports academic service-learning and community engagement initiatives designed to enhance students’ civic and academic learning, promote engaged research that is responsive to community needs, and contribute to the public good through mutually beneficial community-university partnerships. The OSL reports jointly to the Vice President for Public Service and Outreach and the Vice President for Instruction.
