UWG recognized as a National College of Distinction
The University of West Georgia has been recognized among the nation's top universities in meeting student needs. Also, its business, nursing and education programs have been included among the country's most effective in a new publication from Colleges of Distinction.

Travel Policy Update
Effective October 1: While state travel regulations now allow first class or business class airfare for international flights including Alaska and Hawaii, the University System of Georgia does not permit first class travel unless the circumstances noted in Section 4.6.1 of the Business Procedures Manual are met. While the USG aligns its travel procedures with those of the State of Georgia, in this case the USG has elected to be more restrictive with respect to first class travel. The USG is committed to using its resources, regardless of fund source, in a fiscally prudent manner and believes first class travel, except for permissible circumstances, does not demonstrate appropriate stewardship of institutional funds.

UWG Name Tag Design

As we continue to work toward a unified and professional image for UWG, we have created a new, standard UWG name tag. UCM has provided McEver's Awards the approved designs and dimensions for faculty, staff and student name tags. The ordering process is simple and ensures uniformity across the university. Just send an email to, and Catrice or Chadene will assist you. The cost per badge is $11. Group discounts are available.

The Work West Bulletin

The Work West Bulletin will provide you with the information you need to get through your work week. This bulletin is a visually interactive way to share important dates, deadlines, policy changes, and training information all in one place. The Work West Bulletin will be published weekly on Mondays to all faculty and staff.

Items can be submitted to the bulletin via email: Bulletin announcements (100 words or less) should be submitted by noon on Thursday before the following Monday's publishing date. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact UCM. We hope that you will find it helpful and informative. We look forward to continuing to improve how we share the great news of UWG with you.
