ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Albany State President Dr. Art Dunning says the school is working hard to make the consolidation process come together smoothly.

Consolidation teams from both A-S-U and Darton are working on lots of details including the vision statement.

Dunning says some of the other priorities include making sure students can register for classes and employees are paid.

They're also working on how to integrate the academic programs.

Dunning says it's a process and will take time.

“One of the things we know we'll be doing is making sure everything is student centered. We will make sure every decision we make will be to the benefit of the student. This is not just going to be an organizational change and structural change without suggesting that the corner stone is the benefit of students,” says Dr. Art Dunning, President of Albany State University.

The two consolidation teams are made of up of a total of 40 people, 20 representatives from each school.
