Savannah State University Presidential Search Committee Gains New Member

Atlanta — February 1, 2007

Dr. Beheruz N. Sethna, University System of Georgia interim executive vice chancellor and chief academic officer, today announced the replacement of a member of the campus committee charged with assisting in the selection of a new president for Savannah State University (SSU).

Dr. Malik Watkins, director of the Survey Research Center in the SSU Office of Graduate Studies and Sponsored Research, will replace Dr. Jane Gates, interim vice president for academic affairs, who is no longer available to serve on the committee.

The SSU Presidential Search and Advisory Committee was appointed in early January to help identify the best candidate to replace President Carlton Brown, who stepped down from his position at the end of 2006.
