About the University of Georgia
Since our founding in 1785, the University of Georgia has operated as Georgia's oldest, most comprehensive, and most diversified institution of higher education (). The proof is in our more than 235 years of academic and professional achievements and our continual commitment to higher education. UGA is currently ranked among the top 20 public universities in U.S. News & World Report. The University's main campus is located in Athens, approximately 65 miles northeast of Atlanta, with extended campuses in Atlanta, Griffin, Gwinnett, and Tifton. UGA employs approximately 3,000 faculty and more than 7,700 full-time staff. The University's enrollment exceeds 40,000 students including over 30,000 undergraduates and over 10,000 graduate and professional students. Academic programs reside in 18 schools and colleges, as well as a medical partnership with Augusta University housed on the UGA Health Sciences Campus in Athens.

About the College/Unit/Department
The Mary Frances Early College of Education (MFE COE) is committed to promoting diversity in education and society through its Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion, through its research and teaching missions, and through collaborative work with community residents and organizations. It consistently ranks nationally in the top ten Elementary Education and Curriculum and Instruction programs. The excellence of the faculty has enabled the MFE COE to recruit doctoral students nationally and internationally and place them in a variety of prestigious positions following graduation, further enhancing the College's outstanding reputation around the globe.

The Department of Language and Literacy Education has contributed to this stature locally, nationally, and internationally. Many faculty collaborate with other MFE COE departments in program development, research partnerships, and other associations. The department has developed programs that meet the University of Georgia's mission to expand students' Experiential Learning through service-learning projects, community inquiry programs, summer programs designed to serve the local community, and related initiatives. The faculty have long held leadership roles in national and international organizations dedicated to language and literacy education. Departmental faculty have also developed international collaborations with educators in Russia, Mexico, Uzbekistan, Cyprus, and other locations. The Donna Alvermann Endowed Professor for Social Change will find the department to be a dynamic and stimulating environment for advancing the field's understanding of literacy research and pedagogy.
