In addition to educational programs, University Judiciary also hosts several large scale events that serve to educate our members, connect our organization to the University campus and Athens community, and recognize deserving members and alumni who serve the organization.
The 2017 Jenny Penney Oliver University Judiciary Recognition and Induction Ceremony took place on Saturday, April 8, 2017 at the UGA Special Collections Libraries. We inducted 22 new members into the organization and were able to recognize outstanding members for their contributions to the organization and to UGA! We also had the opportunity to honor our graduating members, who are going on to a wide variety of careers and graduate schools, located all over the US and abroad. The alumni speaker was Robert E. Gordon, Jr., who is the Director of the Archway Partnership.
Showcase of Diversity
University Judiciary partnered with the Office of Institutional Diversity, Equal Opportunity Office, Multicultural Services and Programs, Disability Resource Center, International Student Life, Student Veteran’s Resource Center, and Multicultural Greek Council for this event. This event was a proactive approach to inform students of the foundations to continue to build a culture of inclusive excellence here at UGA. Additionally, the Showcase included life-sized maps of the state of Georgia, the U.S., and the world for students, faculty, and staff to pin where they are from in order to show UGA’s geographic diversity.
Driving Up Intelligence (DUI Awareness Event)
UJ, the Fontaine Center, and Delta Tau Delta collaborated to hold the second annual DUI Awareness. The event was aimed towards educating students on the dangers of driving under the influence of Alcohol and/or other Drugs. This year’s event took the form of a Pizza – Trivia night where teams answered questions about DUI in order to win prizes.
101 Things to Do in Athens without the use of drugs or alcohol
UJ partnered with the Residence Hall Association and Improv Athens to provide an interactive performance to students about various activities, events, and programs on campus and within Athens that students can participate in that do not require the use of alcohol and other drugs.
This year, we successfully hosted the fourth annual overnight University Judiciary Retreat at Camp Twin Lakes in Winder, Georgia. This retreat allowed our current and provisional members an opportunity to interact with each other. It also provided an opportunity to build trust and develop community within the organization. Staff from UGA’s Multicultural Services and Programs facilitated discussion about integrating social justice principles into members’ collegiate experiences. Additionaly, UGA Rec Sports staff members led various team-building activities, which taught members the importance of respect and communication. Also, all members participated in developing organizational goals for the upcoming year. We believe this experience breaks down personal barriers allowing all members to respect each other and their opinions for the upcoming year.
University Judiciary continued its ongoing partnership with Keep Athens Beautiful and held biannual community service event at Cedar Shoals High School. Members of the organization helped renovate to the existing community garden for a grant project. The work consisted of soil rotation and preparation for this year’s crop. Furthermore, new nutrient-rich topsoil was added in order to boost crop yield. Members were able to bond with each other while improving the garden for the school.
