Welcome to the University of West Georgia

My name is Dr. Brendan B. Kelly, and I am honored to serve as the eighth president of this wonderful institution, home to seven colleges and schools and more than 13,000 students. As one of the newest Wolves in the pack, what I find most exciting is the genuine passion, the sense of pride, and the incredible adaptability that our faculty, staff, and students display at UWG. 

I want to be the first to tell you that we are a university community unlike any other. At UWG, we’re preparing the next generation of leaders, and we want all our graduates to be known for their scholarly acumen, values leadership, and applied learning. That keeps us relevant in the higher education marketplace.

Things are intentionally different here at UWG. The community our students experience here is unparalleled, and that’s the chief reason why many students choose UWG. They want a community that’s actually invested in their success. You’ll find that here.

Our priority at the University of West Georgia is, and always will be, student success. As president, my goal is to help make sure our students are in the best possible position to succeed. With the help of our dynamic faculty and staff who work to serve our students well every day – and the 70,000 alumni we have around the globe who have seen their dreams become reality because of their education from UWG – we can’t wait to make you a part of our story.

Go West, and Go Wolves!
