Laura L. Clark

  • Director of the Office of Undergraduate Programs, Undergraduate Program in Athens


Laura grew up in Athens and is a Triple Dawg, earning all three of her degrees from the University of Georgia. Her career at UGA spans over 30 years – beginning at the Georgia Center for Continuing Education, followed by the College of Education and now with the Terry College of Business. Her professional areas of interest include customer service, adult education and academic advising. Laura’s parents, husband and daughter are all graduates of the University of Georgia, as well. She bleeds Red and Black and, while she is relatively well-traveled, Laura believes it is tough to find a better place to call home than Athens and UGA!
