ALBANY — There will be a single university in Albany, a unified Albany State University.  It will absorb Darton State College.

In a report from WALB, it was announced the Board of Regents voted Tuesday to merge Albany State University (ASU) and Darton State College (DSC). The proposal came from Chancellor Hank Huckaby to consolidate the two institutions to increase education attainment levels and transform how the University System impacts southwest Georgia, according to the report.

This is the fourth round of consolidation within the University System.  The Board of Regents issued the following statement on the merger:

“The consolidated institution, Albany State University, will continue to serve the HBCU mission and build on its mission and that of Darton State to serve students, the community and region,” said Chancellor Hank Huckaby. “We respect the passion the community, students and alumni hold for these institutions. The new Albany State University will blend the strengths and values of each institution to strengthen the community and region more deliberately.”
