During a speech held to kick-off the beginning of the fall semester, UNG President Bonita Jacobs announced the creation of the new position in UNG's Office of Academic Affairs, which will support a more robust research structure that intertwines engagement, scholarship and innovation with an aim for increasing external funding. UNG is one of only two public universities in Georgia to earn the Carnegie Foundation’s classification for community engagement.

"This year will be marked by an increasingly productive exploration of our responsibilities to our students‚ our colleagues‚ and to our region. To highlight this shared sense of commitment and purpose as a public institution, it is only fitting that we designate the current academic year as, 'The Year of Engagement,'" Jacobs said. "As we have seen with our initiatives from last year, I know this deliberative approach will produce great results toward our continued success in teaching, scholarship and service."
