The mission of the Family and Consumer Sciences Alumni Association is to keep alumni, students, faculty, and friends interested in, involved with, and connected to the College.
The FACS Alumni Association provides a variety of support to the college. Outreach and engagement are two familiar areas. Financial support is another area that has become a primary focus for our board. For many years we have provided funds for two scholarships and just last year we added third. The FACS Alumni 4-H Scholarship, The FACS Alumni Association Scholarship and FACS Alumni Family, Career and Community Leaders of America Scholarship are given annually to current students or high school students who have excelled in local, state and national leadership with their respective organizations.
Additionally, the FACS Alumni Association values connecting with our alumni in their place of work and community. Remember your college if your business could benefit from a student intern.
The FACS 2000 Alumni Panel gives students an overview of Family and Consumer Sciences and focuses on preparing students by connecting them to people, resources and opportunities at UGA within the College. This panel is hosted twice a year (Fall and Spring). Interested in speaking on a panel? Email FACSAlumn@uga.edu
