Commit to a healthy campus using DawgCheck

As a part of our commitment to safety, we ask that faculty, staff, students and visitors use the new DawgCheck self-screening tool. Immediate self-reporting is critical in helping us assess and respond to risks and exposures on campus.

Our statewide research impact

The Research and Education Centers (RECs) play a central role in this mission by providing faculty and students with the opportunity to conduct experiments across a wide range of environments and production systems. CAES has eight off-campus REC facilities located throughout the state. 

This research network is vital to Georgia agriculture and collectively allows faculty and students to address local production concerns as well as to answer more fundamental research questions and further the development of new technologies related to agriculture and natural resources.
