The Board of Regents today named Dr. Kyle Marrero president of Georgia Southern University.
Marrero, currently president of the University of West Georgia, will begin his new position April 1.
“Dr. Marrero is the right person to lead Georgia Southern University as it continues to expand its footprint in Southeast Georgia,” said University System of Georgia (USG) Chancellor Steve Wrigley. “Kyle’s higher education experience, combined with his focus on strengthening academics and building community partnerships, will be an asset to Georgia Southern’s campus community and the region as a whole."
"Georgia Southern University is an incredible institution and I am honored to be chosen as its 14th president,” said Marrero.
Prior to his appointment at UWG, Marrero served as vice president for university advancement at the University of West Florida. He holds bachelor’s and master’s degrees in vocal performance from Bowling Green State University and a Doctor of Musical Arts degree from the University of Michigan.
