Panels named to search for new president of Savannah State

By The Associated Press

SAVANNAH, Ga. (AP) — Two panels have been tasked with finding a new president for Georgia’s oldest historically Black university.

Savannah State University has been overseen by an interim leader since its last president, Cheryl Dozier, retired in the summer of 2019.

The state Board of Regents, which governs Georgia's public universities, named two search committees on Thursday.

The first will be made up of Savannah State faculty, staff, students and alumni, the board said in a news release. That group will recruit candidates for the president’s job and recommend three to five finalists.

A second panel of Board of Regents members will pick the final president. The board did not give a deadline for the president search to be completed.

Savannah State is a 130-year-old school founded in 1890.
