ENHANCING THE LOCAL ECONOMY The Archway Partnership began in 2005 in Colquitt County and continues today in Colquitt and eight additional counties with programs that enhance the local economy. During the five years of the initial partnership, dozens of UGA faculty and students worked with county leaders to address issues surrounding the county’s growth, including its lack of available infrastructure, housing, and child care options to accommodate a new poultry processing plant under construction. County officials developed a land-use plan to guide growth and local leaders began to look for resources to target at-risk youth and stem the growing high school drop out rate.
The local YMCA received a grant to establish the Healthy Colquitt Coalition to focus on improving the health status of local residents. With assistance from UGA Extension and College of Public Health (CPH), Colquitt was able to bring on another Archway professional, this time from CPH, to continue to improve citizens well-being. An impact study from March 2017 shows that in the 12 years since the Colquitt Archway Partnership began, it has helped generate an additional $226.9 million in economic activity for the State of Georgia.
“Before Archway, when a community issue or opportunity came up we didn’t necessarily think about how UGA could help us. Since Archway’s been around, a lot of times that’s one of our first thoughts—could UGA via Archway help us with this issue or opportunity?” ROY REEVES CHAIR, COLQUITT COUNTY ARCHWAY

DOWNTOWN RENAISSANCE PARTNERSHIP COMMUNITIES
Through the institute's Downtown Renaissance Partnership, faculty and students at UGA are preparing economic development plans and improvements for the cities of Chatsworth, Chickamauga, Lookout Mountain, Ringgold and Rossville. The Vinson Institute has received $200,000 over the past two years to help revitalize these communities.
The Downtown Renaissance Partnership is a 4-year-old collaboration between the Vinson Institute and the Georgia Municipal Association and the Georgia Cities Foundation. The partnership includes intensive three-month fellowships for students in UGA’s landscape architecture program as well as other learning opportunities for undergraduate and graduate students enrolled in the university’s College of Environment and Design. PROJECTS INCLUDE • A historic rail depot in Chickamauga has been converted into a downtown Welcome Center • An old textile mill in Rossville is being studied as a possible site for social and business ventures • A new stage is being built in Chatsworth, and streetscape improvements will link the stage and surrounding park to downtown • The city of Lookout Mountain is developing a new town center development concept
CENTER FOR CONTINUING EDUCATION & HOTEL
CENTER FOR CONTINUING EDUCATION & HOTEL
60 YEARS STRONG AND GETTING BETTER ALL THE TIME The Center for Continuing Education & Hotel turned 60 this year and is adding some new features to educate visitors about the origins of the building and its mission. A historic storyboard will greet guests in the gallery outside of Mahler and Masters halls. It traces the history of Public Service and Outreach at the University of Georgia. The W.K. Kellogg Foundation gave UGA $2.4 million in 1953 to pay for construction of the center, which would offer continuing education programs and hotel rooms for overnight guests. The State of Georgia matched the gift and the building was completed in 1957. In 1984, Kellogg provided an additional $8.4 million to expand the facility. The State of Georgia provided $1 million. The Center for Continuing Education & Hotel is key to serving UGA's tripartite mission through excellence in continuing education designed to address the strategic workforce needs of the state and to meet the needs of Georgiaâ€™s citizens through life-long learning and professional education.

MARINE EXTENSION AND GEORGIA SEA GRANT
Marine Extension and Georgia Sea Grant
PROTECTING COASTAL DEVELOPMENT, HELPING RESIDENTS SAVE MONEY Marine Extension and Georgia Sea Grant has helped coastal Georgia communities reduce their potential for flooding, saving property owners millions of dollars through the Community Ratings System (CRS), a Federal Emergency Management Agency program. Communities are eligible to join the CRS by agreeing to
exceed minimum floodplain management standards in new development and mitigating the flood potential of existing development. For example, using an adaptation plan developed by UGA, Tybee Island has implemented several projects designed to lessen the degree of flooding and lower the town’s CRS score.
New construction now must be at least a foot above base flood elevation, and the town has made drainage improvements to prevent the storm water system from filling with sea water at high tide before a rain. Residents of the CRS communities can reduce their flood insurance premiums by meeting Tybee’s higher standards.
When resident Deb Baber elevated her home, her flood insurance fell from $2,500 to $387 a year. “That’s pretty good considering I live four houses from the water,” Baber said.

GROW IT, KNOW IT, EAT IT Clarke County Middle School students are learning about gardening, nutrition and health thanks to a partnership between the UGA Office of ServiceLearning, UGA Cooperative Extension and the Clarke County School District. Beginning with the 2016-17 academic year, all four middle schools in Clarke County were assigned AmeriCorps VISTAs to oversee school
garden programs under the direction of Wick Prichard, a former VISTA assigned to Clarke Middle School (CMS), now a fulltime UGA employee. While at CMS, Prichard created a sustainability program with a farm-totable operation called “Grow It Know It” that included meals prepared and served to the public by sixth-eighth grade students.
Through “Grow It Know It,” students get hands-on experience in recycling, composting, nutrition and food insecurity, all lessons in the middle school agriscience curriculum. The program has now expanded to all four middle schools in the CCSD.

14 THOUSAND NUMBER OF GEORGIA COMPANIES THAT EXPORT GOODS AND SERVICES
$35.5 BILLION SALES VALUE OF EXPORTS FROM GEORGIA COMPANIES
GROWING SMALL BUSINESS BEYOND BORDERS For some Georgia companies, especially those in rural communities, growing revenue means growing beyond U.S. borders. In 2017, the Small Business Development Center (SBDC) won a national award for helping Georgians do just that. The National Association of Small Business International Trade Educators presented the SBDC with its Advancing International Trade State Award for its work educating and training Georgia entrepreneurs and small business about global trade.
In 2016-17 Georgia had 14,000 companies exporting goods and services with a sales value of $35.5 billion, a 52 percent increase over the last decade. The SBDC has contributed to that growth through training programs like Export UGA, an intensive four-session, 16-hour program, and a monthly workshop in Atlanta that helps companies stay informed about key strategies for successful imports/exports.
“We knew all we needed to know as domestic distributors, but we had no direct knowledge of the foreign customer. My boss suggested I attend the Georgia SBDC's ExportGA class. I did and it was a great experience.”

Student Scholar Kavi Pandian, who interned with the J. W. Fanning Institute for Leadership Development, got to work with Clarke County Peer Court. The program trains middle and high school students to serve as advocates, judges, jurors and bailiffs who hear other teenagers’ first-time misdemeanor cases. The leadership opportunity for youths also frees professional judges’ time to focus on more serious cases.
STUDENT SCHOLARS, FUTURE LEADERS IN SERVICE As a 2016-17 Public Service and Outreach Student Scholar, Shivani Rangaswamy got a first hand look at some of the critical issues challenging Georgia's rural communities. One that really stood out for the pre-med major was the much higher incidence of low birth weight babies to women who live in rural areas than those in urban communities. Twenty UGA undergraduate students completed the Public Service and Outreach (PSO) Student Scholar program in spring 2017. Created in 2011, the year-long program provides undergraduate students the opportunity to learn about the land- and sea-grant missions of the university. Students spend the fall semester meeting weekly to learn about the eight PSO units. During the spring semester they participate in individualized internships supervised by faculty and staff in the PSO units. So far nearly 100 students have participated in the program.
“I knew that birth weight gaps would exist,” Rangaswamy said. “I was surprised it was 17 percent higher, comparable to what you see in developing countries." The problem, she learned, is that pregnant women in rural Georgia have fewer resources available to educate them about good prenatal care, and
often don't know about ones that are available. Smoking, stress and poor nutrition can lead to newborn babies weighing less than 5.1 pounds. These babies are more likely to have health problems later in life including diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure, metabolic syndrome and obesity. That not only reduces quality of life but puts a strain on already stressed rural healthcare systems. Rangaswamy spent her spring internship with the Archway Partnership researching programs aimed at tackling risk factors and locating providers in middle and south Georgia. She compiled the information into a resource guide, which she then took to clinics and health centers in seven rural Georgia counties.
As an intern with the Archway Partnership during the spring semester of 2016-17 Shivani Rangaswamy researched public health challenges in middle Georgia and found that a higher percentage of babies born in rural areas were low birth weight. Rangaswamy sought out resources available to women of childbearing age and compiled the information into a booklet. She then took copies of the booklets to health care professionals in Grady, Spalding, Colquitt, Clayton and Houston counties to distribute to patients.
"It’s an area we need to be working on as a state. We plan to use this to educate our staff so they can educate mothers. We need to get people in early for prenatal care and follow-up with education."

PSO FACULTY FELLOWS
College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences Marin Brewer, assistant professor of mycology, or the study of fungi, in the College of Agriculture and Environmental Sciences, worked with the State Botanical Garden of Georgia to identify, track and conserve native fungal communities.
2016-17 PUBLIC SERVICE AND OUTREACH FACULTY FELLOWS
Three UGA faculty members were selected for the 2016-17 Public Service and Outreach Faculty Fellowship to work alongside Public Service and Outreach units. The fellows program, created in 2011 by the Office of the Vice President of Public Service and Outreach, gives tenured and tenure-track professors the means to develop enhanced academic courses, conduct community-based research and apply that research to outreach initiatives.
Known as the “mushroom lady” around the garden, Brewer was inspired to study fungi and their relationships with plants during a stint at the Agricultural Research Service, a branch of the U.S. Department of Agriculture in Maine. “I have investigated fungi before, mostly in terms of plant disease and trying to understand emerging crop diseases,” she said. “But this Faculty Fellowship project marks the first time I’ve studied fungal diversity in a natural forest ecosystem.” Brewer’s primary objective was to identify and label the fungi found along the State Botanical Garden's Orange Trail. With the help of her graduate researchers, students in her mycology course and a national database, her lab collected samples and used DNA sequencing to confirm their findings. Armed with a detailed inventory of the collected species, the lab can now create an interactive map and markers to be placed along the trail. Using these tools, the mycology lab will track the species’ growth or decline year after year. “I wouldn’t be able to do any of this work, like the DNA sequencing and creating the interactive map and trail markers, without my fellowship,” said Brewer. “The grant has also provided opportunities for me to conduct several presentations, which helps build a bridge between UGA mycology and the garden.”
College of Engineering
School of Public And International Affairs
Jenna Jambeck, associate professor in the College of Engineering, was the first to quantify how much garbage enters the world’s oceans. Her study, published in “Science” in 2015, estimates that eight million metric tons of plastic waste ends up in our oceans every year.
Rebecca Nesbit, associate professor of public administration and policy in the School of Public and International Affairs, wants to find ways to help organizations on the ground have a greater impact.
“That’s equal to five grocery-size bags filled with plastic for every foot of coastline in the world going into the ocean every single year,” Jambeck said. As a Faculty Fellow, Jambeck tackled the issue of marine debris in Georgia by collaborating with Marine Extension and Georgia Sea Grant to recruit students to collect data along the coast using the Marine Debris Tracker app. Jambeck co-developed the Marine Debris Tracker (MDT) app to engage citizens in marine debris and litter data collection and prevention. The app allows users to submit information about the type, amount and location of litter and debris items during routine cleanups anywhere in the world. Over one million items of debris have been removed and logged by people using the MDT. Removing trash that’s already in the environment is important, but Jambeck stresses the need for a more proactive approach. She has helped create educational materials that include information about ingestion and entanglement, and utilizing the MDT. “If people are noticing litter items and tracking it with the Marine Debris Tracker, then maybe they will think twice the next time they are offered a single use plastic item or will remember to bring their bags or use a water bottle,” she said. “It is these small changes, when taken collectively, that really do make a difference.”
As a Faculty Fellow she partnered with the J.W. Fanning Institute for Leadership Development to explore what UGA can do to help nonprofits the most. After arriving at UGA nearly five years ago, Nesbit reached out to Fanning to get to know the local nonprofit community. She developed surveys to figure out which nonprofits the clients in northeast Georgia find most helpful. She’s studying how their experiences with Fanning changed the way they work. Nesbit dug deep to find out how Fanning’s work has led to increased fundraising, adjustments in how an organization operates, revised missions or new hires. Next, she'll help Fanning staff figure out what tweaks to make and how to incorporate an ongoing evaluation process. This kind of program evaluation is difficult, Nesbit said. Fanning Institute programs vary from a day-long or weeklong training to a months-long strategic planning process. Instructors use different methods, too, which can make it difficult to do an assessment on the fly. “We want to connect the local nonprofit community with resources at the university,” Nesbit said. “Our hope is to strengthen these organizations so they can do good in the community. Ultimately, that’s what I hope to get out of it: something I can do to help the community and these nonprofits."
We celebrate you and your generosity. Thank you for giving and impacting the lives of others through Public Service and Outreach at the University of Georgia.

LIFETIME OF SERVICE LEADS TO LEGACY GIFT David Knauft was doing service-learning before it even existed at UGA. His legacy gift to the Office of Service-Learning will ensure that the groundwork he laid will continue into the future. David and Evelyn Knauft have included money in their will to go to the Office of Service-Learning to continue connecting students to the community around them. A professor, researcher and associate dean in agriculture at four different universities, Knauft's accomplishments include helping to identify a mutation in peanuts that makes peanut oil healthier than olive oil. A highlight of his 19 years at UGA has been creating and teaching Project FOCUS (Fostering Our Community's Understanding of Science), an ongoing partnership between UGA and the Clarke County School District that helps elementary and middle school students better understand science. The program partners science majors with Clarke County teachers to help teach kindergarten through eighth grade. Project FOCUS was one of the first and largest service-learning opportunities at UGA. “We hope our gift will have a broad impact in people's lives,” Knauft said. “Not just on students, but also faculty members, and people in the community as well.”

ATHENS RESTAURANT INVESTS IN GEORGIA OYSTERS ON THE HALF-SHELL Seabear Oyster Bar in Athens is more than 200 miles from the Georgia coast. But its owners are investing in the UGA Oyster Hatchery on Skidaway Island, hoping to one day soon offer fresh Georgia oysters on the half shell, alongside the Alpine Bay oysters from Prince Edward Island, Canada, and the White Stone oysters from Virginia’s Chesapeake Bay. “I fully believe that the closer you are to the source of the oyster the better they taste,” said Patrick Stubbers, who owns Seabear with Noah Brendel and Peter Dale. Seabear was a silver sponsor of the first Oyster Roast for a Reason, a fundraiser for the hatchery held in November 2016. The hatchery, built at the UGA Marine Extension and Georgia Sea Grant Shellfish Research Lab on Skidaway, is the first of its kind in Georgia. It is intended to help establish an oyster aquaculture industry, allowing harvesters to farm single oysters that can be sold on the half-shell. The hatchery is expected to produce between 5 million and 6 million spat, or baby oysters, per year by 2018, worth an estimated $1.6 million when harvested. Located in the Bottleworks on Prince Avenue in Athens, Seabear opened in 2014 and is committed to sustainable oyster cultivation.

ATLANTA COUPLE HONORS MOTHERS WITH GIFT TO GARDEN A $225,000 gift to the State Botanical Garden of Georgia will pay for the construction of a stainless steel and polished glass arbor in the Alice H. Richards Children's Garden. Adrian and John Robinson, with their children Will and Rice, made the gift as a tribute to their mothers, who were among the earliest members of the State Botanical Garden Board of Advisors. John's mother, Margaret Mobley Robinson, who lives in Sea Island, was a charter member of the board when it formed in 1985. Adrian's mother, Charlotte Carter Merry, who lives in Highlands, N.C., joined the board in 1988. Adrian and John met as children and were in school together in Athens until second grade when Charlotte Merry remarried and the family moved to Augusta. Years later, after graduating from college, they reconnected during a Gardens of the World Ball and married a few years later. “It's all about our mothers,” said Adrian Robinson, an advisory board member since 2016. “They loved this botanical garden and worked so hard. They truly put their heart and soul into it. ”
