Marion Fedrick, president of Albany State University and member of the current IHE executive doctoral program cohort, chairs an important advisory committee to review and study the names of buildings and colleges on all University System of Georgia (USG) campuses.
In a press release announcing the committee, Chancellor Steve Wrigley noted, "USG’s mission is knowledge, and this action today is a step toward addressing how communities understand the history and context involving our campuses.”
UGA President Jere W. Morehead described the panel as "a distinguished group of civic leaders" in his statement of support for the group and its "important and timely work."
Recommendations from the group will be reported to the Board and made public upon completion.
Fedrick became president of ASU in August 2018 after serving as interim president since January. She also served as executive vice president at ASU and as vice chancellor for human resources of USG.
