Faculty and Staff


For many professors, guiding students and impacting the community doesn't end outside the classroom.

Faculty and Staff, like students, have historically been driving forces to insure that universities have consistently been at the forefront of solving the biggest challenges facing our nation. With problems as complex as coal and energy, universities once again have a critical role to play creating and calling for new and innovative solutions- as a flagship institution in the South, UGA should be leading the way rather than falling behind the curve on energy production.

Coal isn’t just harmful to local environments and resident health in the areas it’s mine- coal affects the health of those in the communities where it’s burned. Like UGA’s campus. Toxin and smog emissions at coal plants can be so bad that, within the Campuses Beyond Coal Campaign, students at the University of Wisconsin actually sued their school and won for the affect coal pollution was having on the health of students and community members. With a gorgeous campus and a proud athletic tradition, we can’t afford coal particles in our Athens air.
