Navigating a new school system can be overwhelming for students and their parents. Now imagine that English is not your first language: you’d probably feel lost, confused, and nervous. That is the reality for so many families in Georgia.

Our Professional Interpreter in Education certificate program is a highly acclaimed course that will help you serve families of students whose first language is not English. This is a great opportunity not only to learn new skills and advance your career, but also to help others and serve your community.

UGA's turfgrass experts are unparalleled, and earlier this spring, the Georgia General Assembly passed a pair of resolutions recognizing the University of Georgia-developed bermudagrass, TifTuf.

Wayne Hanna, professor of crop and soil sciences at UGA-Tifton, and Brian Schwartz, associate professor of crop and soil sciences at UGA-Tifton, have been developing and testing TifTuf for almost 25 years. The bermudagrass variety uses 38% less water and retains 95% more green leaf tissue during drought stress when compared to other varieties.

TifTuf also is one of the biggest economic drivers for the state’s turfgrass industry, which generates an estimated $9 billion in economic impact every year.

TifTuf’s durability has been demonstrated in several locations around the world, including UGA’s campus, Atlanta’s Centennial Olympic Park, the Sydney Opera House in Australia and many other fields and golf courses.
