ATHENS, Ga. (AP) -- University of Georgia officials say Laura Crawley has been named the new director of the University of Georgia's Gwinnett campus.

Crawley has served as director of the executive MBA program in the J. Mack Robinson College of Business at Georgia State University since 2009. She will succeed Ruth Bettandorff, who retired in September.
