Official UGA Bio

Jere W. Morehead became the University of Georgia's 22nd president on July 1, 2013, having previously served as UGA's senior vice president for academic affairs and provost since 2010.

President Morehead's career covers a wide range of faculty and administrative roles. Prior to 2010, he served UGA in several key administrative assignments, including vice president for instruction, vice provost for academic affairs, associate provost and director of the Honors Program, and acting executive director of legal affairs. From 2003 to 2010, he served as the University's Faculty Athletics Representative.

As UGA President, he also serves as chair of the UGA Athletic Association Board of Directors, chair of the UGA Research Foundation, and a UGA Foundation trustee.

President Morehead is the Meigs Professor of Legal Studies in the Terry College of Business, where he has held a faculty appointment since 1986. He is a co-author of several books and book chapters, including The Legal and Regulatory Environment of Business, and he has published scholarly articles on legal topics ranging from export controls to jury selection. He has served as editor-in-chief of the American Business Law Journal and previously held several other editorial board positions with the ABLJ.

He directed the UGA Law School's Advocacy Program from 1986 to 1995 at a time when the moot court teams he coached won international, national, regional and state championships. In 1995, he served as a visiting professor of business law at the University of Michigan.

President Morehead has received several University-wide teaching awards, including the Josiah Meigs Award -- UGA's highest honor for teaching excellence -- the Richard B. Russell Award for Excellence in Undergraduate Teaching; the Teacher of the Year Award in the Terry College of Business; and the Lothar Tresp Outstanding Honors Professor Award.

President Morehead is a native of Lakeland, Florida. He moved with his family to Atlanta as a teenager, where he completed high school early, and enrolled at Georgia State University at the age of 16. He graduated with a bachelor's degree four years later in 1977. He entered the University of Georgia School of Law in 1977, where he graduated with a Juris Doctor degree at the age of 23 in 1980. After graduation, he served as an assistant United States attorney with the Department of Justice from 1980 to 1986. He is the first alumnus of UGA to be named president since Dr. Fred Davison in 1967.
