The University System of Georgia has named Marion Fedrick as interim president of Albany State University. Art Dunning, president of Albany State previously announced that he will step down at the end of January.
Fedrick has been serving as interim executive vice president at Albany State since October. Earlier, she was vice chancellor for human resources at the University System of Georgia. In that role, she directed all system-wide human resource efforts, employee benefit programs, and organizational development and leadership initiatives.
After her appointment as interim president, Fedrick noted that “students, alumni, faculty, staff and community leaders have eagerly and candidly shared their thoughts, concerns and ideas for ways the institution can grow and innovate. I am appreciative of this feedback, and the willingness I have seen from faculty and staff to be open to change that will benefit our students. This commitment and dedication is what will move Albany State forward to better serve the local community and the Southwest region of our state.”
Fedrick holds bachelor’s and master’s degrees from the University of Georgia.
