Congratulations Timika Boykin!
Christina Brogdon, assistant vice president and chief human resources officer, is proud to announce that Boykin has been accepted into TIAA's Emerging Leaders Network (ELN) program. The ELN provides leadership-development opportunities through training and interaction with peers in several areas of Human Resources from diverse institutions. It covers a broad range of topics–including understanding the world of higher education and HR, deepening understanding of HR technical topics and growing leadership skills.

UWG wants to gauge students' experiences in college–both inside and outside the
classroom–as well as faculty practices linked with high levels of learning and
development using the NSSE and FSSE. The National Survey of Student Engagement
(NSSE) will go out to first-year and senior students via campus email on Feb. 14 and be
open until mid-May. The Faculty Survey of Student Engagement (FSSE) begins March
26 and runs through May 9. If you have questions, please contact Amanda Thomas
at or 678-839-6449.

RecycleMania 2019
RecycleMania is a national competition in which colleges and universities set recycling benchmarks, strive to increase recycling rates and work to educate the community about recycling and sustainability. Recycle West has participated in RecycleMania since 2015. The competition will run through Sunday, March 31. 

During this time faculty, staff and students have an opportunity to directly participate in the university's sustainability efforts by recommitting to recycling on campus. The first step for each person is to take the “pledge,” committing to learn about recycling on campus. After pledging, find out more by attending one of the recycling education sessions during the competition and engaging in recycling and other sustainable practices.Click here for more information or send an email to
