Jere Morehead (JD ’80) Named Finalist in Search for Next UGA President

Yesterday afternoon, the University was buzzing with the latest news regarding the search for the next president of the University of Georgia. I am pleased to share that Jere Morehead (JD ’80), currently the senior vice president for Academic Affairs and provost at UGA, has been announced as the finalist to take over for President Michael F. Adams, who will step down this summer.

Morehead, a speaker at the Bulldog 100 celebration in Atlanta last weekend and a long-time friend of the UGA Alumni Association, has previously served as UGA’s vice president for instruction, vice president for Academic Affairs, director of the Honors Program, and acting executive director of Legal Affairs. He is the Meigs Professor of Legal Studies in the Terry College of Business, where he has had a faculty appointment since 1986. In addition, Morehead serves as vice chair of the Georgia Athletic Association Board of Directors, vice chair of the UGA Research Foundation, a UGA Foundation Trustee, and a UGA Real Estate Foundation Trustee.

In the wake of his being announced as the finalist for the presidency, Morehead made the following statement:

“I am honored and humbled to have been selected by the chancellor, the chairman and the Board of Regents as the finalist for president of the University of Georgia.  I look forward to making further statements regarding this wonderful opportunity to continue serving the University of Georgia after the board completes its process in the coming days.”

On behalf of the University of Georgia Alumni Association, we congratulate Provost Morehead on this honor. We understand the Board of Regents will take final action on the selection of the next president of UGA at a future meeting. We will be sure to share any updates as they are made public. Until then, we wish the best to UGA School of Law graduate Jere Morehead. We are so proud!

  • Michelle Blue (BBA '13)
  • Julie Rushmore (PHD '13, DVM '17)
