The University of North Georgia has received a $2.1 million federal grant to establish a new program meant to build on the success of orientation, Weeks of Welcome and academic advising programs for incoming students. UNG plans to establish a Success Oriented Academic Reform program on all five campuses with this funding. “This grant will allow UNG to design a holistic approach of engaging students in their first year by helping them with their academics and adjustments to the college experience,” Carol Adams, associate vice president and dean of University College, said in a press release.
