A finite group G is called uniformly generated, if whenever there is a (strictly ascending) chain of subgroups then d is the minimal number of generators of G. Our main result classifies the uniformly generated groups without using the simple group classification. These groups are related to finite projective geometries by a result of Iwasawa on subgroup lattices.
