“In my visits to Albany, I am encouraged by what I see, what I hear and what I experience,” University System of Georgia Chancellor Steve Wrigley said. “In meetings with faculty, staff and students, it is clear Marion’s leadership has caught their attention and made them excited for the future both for themselves and their institution. Her leadership and commitment have made a difference for this institution, and I congratulate her.”

“I have said from the beginning that I am truly inspired by what the future holds for the students, faculty and staff of Albany State,” Fedrick said. “They are passionate and have worked hard toward making this a truly innovative institution. I thank them, as well as Chancellor Wrigley and the Board of Regents, for their belief in me and our team as we work toward that long-term success.”

Fedrick has served as interim president since January, replacing retiring president Art Dunning.
