SPECIAL THANKS BOWL HISTORY HONORS 66 | 58th AutoZone Liberty Bowl TCU GEORGIA BOWL EVENTS WELCOME The University of Georgia Athletic Association, under the direction of J. Reid Parker Director of Athletics Greg McGarity, features features 21 varsity sports and is supported by a budget of $123 million. The Bulldogs have won 42 national championships including 29 since 1999. The UGA Athletic Association strives to offer nationally competitive intercollegiate athletic programs, which reflect the interests of our students and faculty, the Southeastern Conference, and the people of Georgia and of the nation who support our activities. These programs provide a worthwhile experience for our student athletes by teaching them the basic principles J. REID PARKER DIRECTOR OF ATHLETICS GREG McGARITY of amateur competition, competitive integrity, fair play, and good sportsmanship. The UGA Athletic Association is committed to the principle of providing equitable opportunities for all students and staff, including women and minorities. These programs and this principle are a source of enthusiasm and loyalty; they enliven and enrich the life of our academic community; they keep our graduates in touch with the University long after they leave campus; they serve as a common rallying point for people of all ages and backgrounds; and they reinforce the University’s commitment to diversity. Above all, we recognize that the University’s obligation to the state of Georgia, and to the parents everywhere who send us their sons and daughters, is to provide our students with a level of quality education which leads to recognized academic achievement, contributing to their social development and preparing them for meaningful lives and careers. We are committed to the proposition that academic achievement is not and should not be a gift. Rather, it is a challenge that must be met by the individual students, as well as the University. UGA student-athletes graduated at a rate of 82 percent in the latest NCAA Graduation Success Rate (GSR) survey period, the NCAA announced this past November. A record 60 percent of UGA’s nearly 500 student-athletes earned at least a 3.0 grade point average in the Spring Semester 2016. As part of its latest budget approved for the fiscal year, Georgia will return more than $4 million to the University. Since 2007, more than $32 million has been returned to UGA from the Athletic Association. GEORGIA ATHLETICS
