In February 1918, the UGA Division of Home Economics, later to become the College of Family and Consumer Sciences, was established. The college’s mission is to advance the well-being of individuals and families over their life span and strengthen communities through the generation and dissemination of knowledge, education of professionals, and provision of research-based programs.
“As we stand on the brink of celebrating 100 years of family and consumer sciences at the University of Georgia, we’re excited to announce the names of these individuals who help us celebrate and honor our history and unique contributions to the history of UGA,” said FACS Dean Linda Kirk Fox. “I am proud to join with others in recognizing these individuals who have embraced and influenced the ideals to which our college aspires, including student-centered education, research to improve the human condition, generosity and a spirit of public service. All of the Centennial Honorees and the members of the Honor Hall of Recognition are to be applauded for their contributions to our success.”
