ALBANY, GA (WALB) - The Darton College Faculty Senate met Monday afternoon to discuss the plan to merge Darton with Albany State.
Senate Chair Jeremiah Pitts explained that he relayed information on the proposal from University System Chancellor Hank Huckaby. Pitts said the faculty had a lot of questions and concerns about the potential merger.
"That there's a continued voice. That we are part of the process moving forward and that we have an opportunity to help steer the direction of the future in collaboration with Albany State," explained Pitts.
Under the proposal, the name of the college would be Albany State University and ASU's Interim President Art Dunning would become president.
The Board of Regents could vote on the plan as early as Tuesday.
