Ahead of his April 1 start date as the next president of the University of West Georgia, Dr. Brendan Kelly visited campus earlier this week to meet with students, faculty, staff and community leaders.

During his three-day visit, Kelly attended several events and meetings, including the Student Government Association, executive committees from UWG foundations, and the Carrollton-Carroll County Education Collaborative.

Captured below are photos from two meet-and-greet events in which Kelly invited campus stakeholders to ask questions and offer insights as he prepares to begin his tenure as UWG's next president.
