UWG values our role in the community. In fact, successful partnerships are one of our four strategic imperatives:

"The University of West Georgia is dedicated to serving our students, faculty, staff, and community in ways that benefit all parties. Value-added partnerships provide a foundation for enhancing the strengths and innovative capabilities of multiple parties and building synergies that go beyond what any one party can achieve on its own. Engaged partnerships create connections that transcend an individual project and provide ongoing collaborations that facilitate achievement of mutually compatible goals. UWG values collaborations across campus and with community partners.

"UWG is committed to being the hub of economic growth in the region. With an expanding presence, UWG serves as an economic growth engine for the entire state of Georgia. In collaboration with leaders in areas like health care, business, technology, agriculture, government, media, performing arts, libraries, cultural heritage and preservation, military, non-profit organizations, and P-12 and other educational institutions, UWG will cultivate a strong network of partners dedicated to making the region a better place to live, work, learn, and play."
