Innovate Teams

Congratulations Innovate Teams!

Staff from across UGA Student Affairs gathered December 12-14, 2017 to address some of the division's critical questions. During the three-day modified Design Sprint (a model developed at Google Ventures), team members identified innovative solutions to pressing challenges, engaged in mutual learning, and built and strengthened relationships. The following solutions were presented to Student Affairs leadership on December 14, 2017 and are currently under review.

  • What steps can we take to form an integrated strategy to promote student health and well-being?
    • Innovate Team Solution: Wellness Center
    • Innovate Team Solution: Be Well UGA
  • What new high impact practice should we adopt to enhance student success for underrepresented students?
    • Innovate Team Solution: First Dawgs
  • What new, exciting experience can we offer that annually brings together thousands of students?
    • Innovate Team Solution: Georgia Tassel Ceremony
