Our 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.

Guided by the signature motto “Knowledge for Real Life,” our faculty and students are responding to some of the most challenging issues facing us today. We are studying and applying the principles of design and business, the sciences and technologies to develop healthier people and thriving communities through more effective educators and a high-tech global workforce.

The College of Family and Consumer Sciences embraces a commitment to diversity by modeling for the state and nation a community of individuals and programs which seek to reduce prejudice, disparities, and discrimination and build a supportive environment for all.

Whether you’re a prospective student, a current UGA Bulldog, a parent or someone who needs expertise we can provide, I warmly welcome you to the College of Family and Consumer Sciences!

Best Wishes,

Linda Kirk Fox, Dean
