ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

The new leader of Albany State University was recognized Monday during a special ceremony.

Dr. Arthur Dunning took over as ASU's interim President last month, but Monday he was officially welcomed by ASU's Foundation Board, National Alumni Association and the Albany Chamber of Commerce.


Kimberly Ballard-Washington temporarily served in the position following the departure of Dr. Everette Freeman.

Dunning says he wants to focus on retention, recruitment and graduation.  "I think that it's important to know that we are such a tremendous asset for the Albany community.  We bring intellectual capital, economic capital as well as social capital, those  things that we add value and the community has embraced all of that and we want to make sure to take that to a higher level."

Dunning worked in the University System of Georgia for 27 years before spending three years as vice chancellor for International Programs and Outreach for the University of Alabama System in Tuscaloosa.
