GEICO has been a committed partner of the University of Georgia for nearly 30 years, providing UGA students with valuable support on campus and career opportunities after graduation.
GEICO’s multi-faceted partnership with UGA extends across the university, from the Career Center to the Terry College of Business to student scholarship support. GEICO joined the Career Center’s Employer Partner program in 2017, which opened the door to classroom speaking opportunities, networking lunches with students and introductions to key UGA faculty members.
Most recently, GEICO representatives spoke to Management and Risk Management and Insurance classes in the Terry College of Business, as well as to Communication Studies students in the Franklin College of Arts and Sciences.
GEICO has shown its commitment to hiring UGA students and alumni through taking on a large class of UGA interns each year. With two regional offices and more than 6,100 associates in Georgia, GEICO continues to provide an abundance of career opportunities for UGA students and graduates.
“Institutions like the University of Georgia do so much to produce the knowledgeable and capable workforce that sustains companies like ours and fuels the state’s vibrant economy.” – Mark Haney | Talent Acquisition Leader | GEICO
This year, GEICO expanded its support of UGA students by becoming one of the first corporate partners to establish an endowed need-based scholarship through the Georgia Commitment Scholarship Program. GEICO’s scholarship will have an immediate impact, as it will be awarded to an incoming freshman this fall and available to the student for four years. This scholarship reflects GEICO’s commitment to removing barriers and creating pathways for students.
GEICO’s support of this program extends beyond just the scholarship, as Haney and Lauren Roan-Parks, Assistant Vice President for Underwriting, visited campus this spring to speak to a group of first-year Georgia Commitment Scholars. Students learned from Haney and Roan-Parks about GEICO and its company culture, as well as potential career opportunities in the future. Students also received tips on topics such as achieving success in college and building and growing a professional network.
“GEICO is proud to support UGA’s efforts to equip students to meet the challenges of today and tomorrow. We consider our support a worthy investment.” – Mark Haney | Talent Acquisition Leader | GEICO
