Freeman to leave Albany State for Colorado position

Albany State University President Everette J. Freeman will leave the position he has had since 2005 to accept a college presidency in Colorado, the Board of Regents announced Wednesday.

Freeman has been named president of the Community College of Denver and will step down from the Albany State job on Oct. 31.

“President Freeman has guided Albany State with integrity and with a focus on serving its students and the community,” Chancellor Hank Huckaby said. “He also has made important contributions to the University System, particularly in the area of emergency planning.”

Albany State, which has an enrollment of more than 4,000, opened a new early learning center, a student center, and two student residence halls while Freeman was president. The university also was able to retire the debt obligations for its football stadium.
