March 1, 2023 – Dr. Nick Place

Date: Wednesday, March 1

Time: 12:30-1:30

Location: Tate 473

The March meeting of the Christian Faculty Forum will be held on Wednesday, March 1st, in Tate 473 with Dr. Nick Place as our speaker. Dr. Place is the Dean of UGA’s College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences joining UGA in this role on January 1, 2021. He recognizes that God uses people to accomplish His purposes, and Nick will be sharing his experience of God doing just that in his life (abstract below).

Prior to coming to UGA he served as dean and director of the Florida Cooperative Extension Service and a professor in the University of Florida Department of Agricultural Education and Communication from 2012 through 2020. Before his appointment with the Florida Cooperative Extension Service, he served as associate dean and associate director of the University of Maryland Extension, supporting faculty in the Colleges of Chemical and Life Sciences, Health and Human Performance, and the University of Maryland Center for Environmental Sciences.

Abstract: While God is able to do anything He desires without the assistance of people, the Scriptures, history, and experience tell us that He chooses to use individuals and situations to impact others for the kingdom. I will share my spiritual journey and the influence that God, God’s people, and faith in Christ have had on me during my life in the academy.

A light lunch will be served to everyone who sends in their RVP by 5 pm, Tuesday, February 28, by filling out the form below.
