The University System of Georgia will need at least eight new college presidents by August.
There are presidential searches under way at Valdosta State and Georgia College & State universities, plus four colleges with searches expected to begin in coming months.
And two more presidents — at Augusta State and Gainesville State — will retire in June. The retirements are not unusual with a new chancellor at the helm of the university system.
Chancellor Henry "Hank" Huckaby began his new job July 1. He is also searching for a new chief academic officer for the university system.
