UGA President Michael Adams leaving office

Posted: Updated:

ATHENS, Ga. (AP) - University of Georgia President Michael Adams is leaving office after 16 years of service, clearing the way for President-elect Jere Morehead to officially begin in his new role.

University System of Georgia Chancellor Hank Huckaby tells the Athens Banner-Herald even Adams' critics will likely say he made a positive impact on the school. Morehead, who previously served as provost and vice president of academic affairs, is set to take office Monday.

Adams says his legacy will be creating the College of Engineering, the School of Public and International Affairs, the Odum School of Ecology, the College of Public Health and a medical partnership the school launched with Georgia Regents University.

Adams says creating those academic programs has helped raise the university's profile in the research field.
