The Office of Instruction’s 2025 Stategic Plan seeks to enhance teaching and learning across campus in order to equip a well-prepared and diverse student body for academic success and lifelong learning.

Students walking by Holmes-Hunter Academic BuildingOur strategic plan comprises eight unit-level goals—six aligned with the University’s Strategic Direction I and two with Strategic Direction II. The intent behind all these goals is to challenge, engage, and support our high-performing, academically strong student body to achieve their highest aspirations. These goals also aim to foster a diverse, inclusive, and equitable learning environment across the University by delivering holistic resources to the entire community and targeted resources to support students from underserved and underrepresented populations.

Mission

The University of Georgia, a land-grant and sea-grant university with statewide commitments and responsibilities, is the state’s oldest, most comprehensive, and most diversified institution of higher education. Its motto, “to teach, to serve, and to inquire into the nature of things,” reflects the University’s integral and unique role in the conservation and enhancement of the state’s and nation’s intellectual, cultural, and environmental heritage. The Office of Instruction provides critical student academic services, from recruitment through graduation as well as faculty support related to teaching and curricular matters. It is charged with empowering instructors and students to enhance the teaching and learning environment across campus, to champion new ideas and methods for teaching and learning, and to prepare students to understand and navigate the global world in which they live, work, and learn. The Office of Instruction is responsible for a wide range of initiatives that advance the University of Georgia as a national leader and as a preeminent, global university.

Values

In pursuit of this mission, the Office of Instruction values academic success, embraces innovation and entrepreneurship in teaching and learning, strives to enhance learning through curricular and co-curricular efforts, promotes an inclusive and equitable environment for teaching and learning, and makes data-informed decisions.

Vision

The vision of the Office of Instruction is to provide a holistic student success program for all students, to be a recognized leader in the science and practice of experiential learning, to promote evidence-based pedagogies as widely as possible across campus, and to be a catalyst for innovation and entrepreneurship in teaching and learning.
