The University of Georgia is committed to serving communities across the state and supporting local economies. We promote economic vitality, civic engagement and community health through programs and units operating statewide.
This commitment has generated a $6.5 billion annual impact on the state’s economy – and that’s not all. University programs and research have helped launch more than 175 companies and introduced more than 775 new products to the market, making UGA a top 5 U.S. university for new products. UGA also has been named a top 10 university for licenses and options for the 12th consecutive year, earning more than $11 million in licensing revenue in 2019 alone. The best part? We’re just getting started.
