Ingrid Thompson-Sellers is the new president of Atlanta Metropolitan State College (AMSC) in Georgia. She took office on February 1.
The college enrolls just over 1,600 students, according to the most recent data available from the U.S. Department of Education. African Americans make up 85 percent of the student body.
In 2017, Dr. Thompson-Sellers was appointed president of South Georgia State College in Douglas. Previously, she was a professor of business information systems at Georgia State University in Atlanta and had served as senior associate dean at the university. Earlier she taught at Georgia Perimeter College in Decatur and at what is now Iona University in New Rochelle, New York.
“AMSC’s strong academic mission and student-focused degree programs are a testament to its legacy of making higher education accessible to more Georgians,” Dr. Thompson-Sellers said. “I look forward to helping my new campus family continue blazing those new trails and thank my South Georgia State College family for their hard work and amazing support of the college and its students.”
Professor Thompson-Sellers holds a bachelor’s degree in physics from the University of the West Indies in Jamaica. She earned a master’s degree in telecommunications from Iona University and a doctoral degree in instructional technology from Georgia State University.
