Albany State, Darton College will consolidate

Albany State University and Darton State College will consolidate to form one institution. The Board of Regents of the University System of Georgia approved a proposal from Chancellor Hank Huckaby to consolidate the two institutions to increase education attainment levels and transform how the University System impacts Southwest Georgia. The regents action on Nov. 10 marks the fourth round of consolidation within the University System.

The new institution will be named Albany State University, and the regents named Albany State Interim President Art Dunning as the permanent president of the new institution. Dunning is a former vice president for public service and outreach at UGA.
