On Jan. 11, 2017, the University System of Georgia Board of Regents voted to consolidate Armstrong State University and Georgia Southern University. The consolidated university will be named Georgia Southern University and will be led by President Jaimie L. Hebert.
An implementation committee has been formed and is comprised of students, faculty and staff from Armstrong State University and Georgia Southern University. These committee members will spend the coming months examining and working through all aspects of the consolidation. The work of the committee was submitted to the Board of Regents for its consideration in December 2017. The consolidation was approved on Dec. 12, and will be effective Jan. 1, 2018. The timeline for the first entering class of the new university will be in fall of 2018.
