The University of Georgia is revving up its approach to sustainability. With 33 new Proterra electric buses set to be in circulation by 2021, UGA is making the transportation industry a little greener.
Amanda Ganger’s career has all added up to her current position. “I always try to keep a positive attitude about anything that happens,” she said. “Work hard and never get discouraged. That project you’re asked to serve on that seems like it will never end will ultimately be a growing experience.”
The University of Georgia has been awarded $7.46 million under the Federal Transit Administration’s Grants for Buses and Bus Facilities Program to purchase an additional 13 electric buses. The funding, along with UGA’s 30% matching share, will grow the university’s fleet to 33 electric buses, representing a tremendous step forward in reducing emissions and increasing opportunities for experiential learning and research.
The University of Georgia Human Resources department is leading the charge in developing a new staff competency model that will benefit UGA staff in the coming years. A staff competency model organizes job responsibilities into clusters that help to frame the knowledge, skills, abilities and other attributes needed to perform effectively in any staff role across the university.
