Serving Our Neighbors
UGA-Tifton strives to exemplify the land-grant mission of the University of Georgia, “to teach, to serve, and to inquire into the nature of things.” We work toward this mission through teaching the next generation about agriculture, serving Georgians in local communities through the UGA Cooperative Extension Service and solving problems through research efforts. You can be part of our UGA-Tifton community in a variety of ways. Whether it is working with your local county Extension agent and 4-H, working on campus as a Young Scholar, or earning a bachelor's or master’s degree close to home in South Georgia, we value the opportunity to connect with you and serve you.
