Dunning named interim president of Albany State

Arthur N. Dunning, a 27-year veteran of the University System, has been named interim president at Albany State University.

He will replace Kimberly Ballard-Washington, who had served as interim president since Nov. 1 after the resignation of former president Everette J. Freeman.

Dunning worked 27 years for the University System in several faculty and administrative positions with Kennesaw State University, as well as administrative positions with the Board of Regents System Office, including vice chancellor for services, acting executive vice chancellor, and senior vice chancellor for human and external resources.

More recently, he served three years as vice chancellor for international programs and outreach for the University of Alabama System in Tuscaloosa. Dunning currently is a professor and senior research fellow in the University’s Education Policy Center.

“Art Dunning has a long and distinguished track record in higher education and particularly in the University System of Georgia,” Chancellor Hank Huckaby said. “I have known Dr. Dunning personally and professionally for many years and am delighted he is available to bring his leadership skills to Albany State University.”
