Welcome to the University of West Georgia
My name is Dr. Brendan B. Kelly, and I am honored to serve as the eighth president of the University of West Georgia, home to six colleges and schools and more than 11,900 students. What I find most exciting about UWG is the genuine passion, the sense of pride, and the incredible adaptability that our faculty, staff, and students display at UWG.
I want to be the first to tell you that we are a university community unlike any other. At UWG, we’re preparing the next generation of leaders, and we want all our graduates to be known for their scholarly acumen, values leadership, and applied learning. That keeps us relevant in the higher education marketplace.
Things are intentionally different here at UWG. The community our students experience here is unparalleled, and that’s the chief reason why many students choose UWG. They want a community that’s actually invested in their success. You’ll find that here.
Our priority at the University of West Georgia is, and always will be, creating life and career outcomes for students. As president, my goal is to help make sure our students are in the best possible position to succeed. With the help of our dynamic faculty and staff who work to serve our students well every day – and the 73,000 alumni we have around the globe who have seen their dreams become reality because of their education from UWG – we can’t wait to make you a part of our story.
Go West, and Go Wolves!
