The Board of Regents has named Gregory Aloia as the next president of the College of Coastal Georgia.
Aloia is expected to start July 1. He is currently president of Concord University in Athens, W. Va., and is a former dean and professor of special education at Florida Atlantic University in Boca Raton.
University Chancellor Hank Huckaby praised Aloia's leadership skills during Wednesday's announcement.
A national search was launched to replace current President Valerie Hepburn, who will be stepping down in June.
The college, located in Brunswick, is in the middle of an expansion plan that aims to enroll some 6,000 students by 2020.
