Engagement, Leadership, and Service

The Engagement, Leadership, and Service (ELS) department within the UGA Division of Student Affairs believes student engagement is a pivotal part of an enriched collegiate experience.

ELS seeks to deliver programs, services, events, and significant learning experiences which strengthen students’ connection to the University, cultivate a sense of community, and empower students to be engaged and contributing leaders. Within ELS, students can join and create student organizations, participate in and lead service opportunities, engage with leadership trainings and content, coordinate or attend multiple events, and so much more.

Programs

Engagement

Student organizations and other involvement opportunities on campus create a way for every student to engage with the UGA community in their own, unique way.

Leadership

Opportunities such as the annual Student Leadership Conference, Leadership UGA and a monthly lunch-and-learn series allow students to grow their skill sets and reflect on their personal development.

Service

UGA's service driven organizations and the Service staff from within the ELS provide a range of opportunities for students to participate in service and cultivate these opportunities for their peers.

Activities

Student activities and events on campus provide space for students to engage with their peers. Students within University Union & Homecoming committees work to plan events throughout the year.

Student Governance

The Student Government Association and Graduate Student Association encourage students to represent their peers through legislation and council initiatives.

    Saturday, November 12th 2022
    9:00 AM - 12:00 PM

    Event Location: Brooklyn Cemetery
    205 Alps Rd, Athens, GA

    Join Serve UGA this semester for volunteering opportunities with Friends at Brooklyn Cemetery! Hidden in the woods behind Clarke Middle School in Athens, Georgia is a portal to another time.  Concealed by vines and brambles, Brooklyn Cemetery is an African American cemetery which was used primarily from the 1880s to the 1990s.  Those who were laid to rest here mostly lived in the Brooklyn/Hawthorne area of Athens. Nature and time have laid claim to much of the cemetery; some tombstones have fallen and are covered with ivy, other graves are completely unmarked.

    The purpose of this service project is to not only educate participants of the historical significance of the cemetery but to also aid in the ongoing beautification, preservation, and research of a once lost landmark of the African American community in Athens, Georgia. Volunteers will work to remove overgrowth, fallen limbs, and underbrush from the grave sites.  

    We volunteer on an ongoing basis at the cemetery.  Once you sign-up, your site leader, Kaley Terlep, will be in touch with you with more information about what to expect.

    The University of Georgia is committed to providing access and reasonable accommodations for people with disabilities upon request. Please contact the Department of Engagement, Leadership, & Service via phone at 706-542-6396 or email at ericalee@uga.edu  with specific requests.

    Join Serve UGA this semester for volunteering opportunities with Friends at Brooklyn Cemetery! Hidden in the woods behind Clarke Middle School in Athens, Georgia is a portal to another time.  Concealed by vines and brambles, Brooklyn Cemetery is an African American cemetery which was used primarily from the 1880s to the 1990s.  Those who were laid to rest here mostly lived in the Brooklyn/Hawthorne area of Athens. Nature and time have laid claim to much of the cemetery; some tombstones have fallen and are covered with ivy, other graves are completely unmarked.

    The purpose of this service project is to not only educate participants of the historical significance of the cemetery but to also aid in the ongoing beautification, preservation, and research of a once lost landmark of the African American community in Athens, Georgia. Volunteers will work to remove overgrowth, fallen limbs, and underbrush from the grave sites.  

    We volunteer on an ongoing basis at the cemetery.  Once you sign-up, your site leader, Kaley Terlep, will be in touch with you with more information about what to expect.

    The University of Georgia is committed to providing access and reasonable accommodations for people with disabilities upon request. Please contact the Department of Engagement, Leadership, & Service via phone at 706-542-6396 or email at ericalee@uga.edu  with specific requests.
