ASU President possibly leaving

May 17, 2008

Albany--Just weeks after some faculty and students called for his resignation, Albany State University's President Dr. Everett Freeman, has been invited to interview for that same title at a school in the nation's capitol.

Freeman announced the news in an email sent to faculty and staff.

He's been invited to interview for President of the University of the District of Columbia, and is now one of four candidates for the job.

Freeman who has served at ASU since 2005 said his years so far have served as a growth and learning opportunity for many on the campus including himself.

"Right now he's just quite honored, and humble to have been asked, and to have made it at this level, I think that's a testament to him but certainly the accomplishments he's made in his career, and certainly at Albany State University," said Wendy Wilson, Interim Director of Communications at ASU.

In the email, Freeman states that when the call came to consider the new prospect, he was not looking for a job.

The University of DC is located in the city where both Freeman and his wife were born and raised.
