We are now the Louise McBee Institute of Higher Education!

Following a transformational gift from the estate of M. Louise McBee, the University of Georgia paid tribute to the former administrator and state legislator with the naming of the Louise McBee Institute of Higher Education.

“Dr. McBee’s extraordinary legacy of leadership and service to UGA and the state of Georgia is one that will be remembered for generations to come,” said UGA President Jere W. Morehead. “For her many contributions to this institution and to public higher education, we are pleased to recognize her and link her with the institute she cared so much about.”

Director Libby V. Morris said, "Dr. McBee represented excellence in all of her pursuits. We are humbled and inspired by her confidence in our mission and activities."
