Nicolette Washington

Master of Public Administration (MPA)

I attended the University of Georgia for my undergraduate degree, where I was able to excel in academics and throughout organizations on campus. Studying abroad, my involvement in Greek Life, and interning at the UGA Environmental Safety Division (ESD) allowed me to truly see every side of this great institution. Over my four years at UGA, I fell in love with the university and everything it has to offer. I graduated with a Bachelor’s of Science in Environmental Health. After graduation, I was extremely lucky to be offered a temporary position at UGA ESD that would allow me to take two months off to travel and hike the John Muir Trail in California. Due to my work ethic and passion for creating a constantly improving environment at UGA, I was offered a full-time permanent position at ESD in Fall of 2015. My current position at ESD involves a variety of roles, which allows me to work with almost every group on campus in some capacity. My main goal while in this position is to increase awareness of environmental issues throughout campus in order create a safe learning and working environment for every student, faculty member, and staff personnel of the UGA Family.


B.S. in Environmental Health Science, The University of Georgia, College of Public Health, 2015

Research Interests

I am interested in the diverse structures of colleges and the university culture throughout the United States. I would like to explore how different strategies of operation and organization affect the efficiency and success of higher education institutions. In addition, I am also interested in the environmental policies of universities and how these policies effect the communities or local governments around them.
