The University of Georgia’s Fanning Institute is being renamed to better communicate its mission under new leadership, according to Vice President for Public Service and Outreach Jennifer Frum. Effective December 1, the Public Service and Outreach unit’s name will be restored to the J.W. Fanning Institute for Leadership Development. Matt Bishop, currently with UGA’s Archway Partnership, will become the institute’s new director. Fanning’s mission will focus on leadership development and specifically developing leaders who can implement sustainable solutions to community challenges.
Frum announced the realignment of the Fanning Institute’s mission and Bishop’s appointment at a Leadership Georgia board meeting in Athens on Nov. 8. The restoration of Leadership Development to the organization’s name signals a renewal of the Fanning Institute’s focus as the namesake of J.W. Fanning, UGA’s first vice president for services and founder of Leadership Georgia, according to Frum.
As the new director of the organization, Bishop will guide development of new goals and refocused programming to accomplish its mission. Bishop is currently a public service associate and coordinator of operations for the Archway Partnership. His 10-year career with UGA includes serving as faculty with the Fanning Institute and the Carl Vinson Institute of Government and faculty coordinator for UGA’s Initiative on Poverty and the Economy. In addition, his public service career has included serving as associate director of the Governor’s Rural Development Council and regional resource coordinator for the Georgia Department of Community Affairs. He also served as a budget analyst for the Gwinnett County Board of Commissioners.
In addition to his professional experience, Bishop has been highly active in Leadership Georgia since 2008. He and his wife, Natalie’08, were chosen to be program chairs in 2009, and he is currently serving a three-year term as a trustee on Leadership Georgia’s board. He holds a master of public administration and a doctor of philosophy in public administration and policy from UGA.
Please join me in congratulating Matt on his new position with the University. His service to UGA and the community is a source of pride for everyone at the Alumni Association. I look forward to continued achievements from the J.W. Fanning Institute for Leadership Development. Go Dawgs!

UGA is hosting its 3rd Annual TEDxUGA event in Tate Grand Hall on Friday, March 27 from 2:00 to 6:00 p.m. What is TEDx?

At the TEDxUGA event, TEDTalks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group.
