The University System of Georgia Board of Regents voted to consolidate Georgia State University and Georgia Perimeter College at its January 6, 2015 meeting. The consolidated university will be named Georgia State University and Georgia State President Mark Becker will lead it.
An implementation committee has been formed, including students, faculty and staff from Georgia State and Georgia Perimeter, who will spend the next year examining and working through all aspects of the consolidation. The work of the committee will be submitted to the Board of Regents for its consideration in January 2016, with implementation finalized by the beginning of the fall semester in 2016.
