ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Faculty and staff at Albany State university gathered Monday morning to discuss the upcoming academic year.

Hundreds of people gathered at the ACAD building on campus to hear presentations about the future of colleges and universities nationwide. They also heard about a new software that should make the jobs of the faculty easier.

For the organizers of the conference, the benefits of having a school like Albany State reach far beyond the campus itself.

Dr. Leroy Bynum, Dean of the College of Arts and Humanities said, "it prepares leaders, it prepares educators, it prepares people to go out and do what they are trained to do and to be productive citizens of Southwest Georgia."

Tuesday's agenda includes a question and answer session with State Senator Freddie Powell Sims and state representatives Winfred Dukes, Carol Fullerton and Ed Rynders. The conference is scheduled to run through Thursday.
