ATLANTA (AP) — Georgia’s largest public university is likely to be led by an academic from George Washington University, while a leader from a Georgia public university is being promoted to lead Clayton State University. Regents voted Tuesday to name M. Brian Blake as the sole finalist to become president at Georgia State University. Blake is provost at George Washington, a private university in Washington, D.C. Regents also voted Tuesday to name T. Ramon Stuart at president at Clayton State University. Stuart has been provost at Fort Valley State University for the past five years. Both men would be the first African Americans to lead the universities. The board must wait at least five days before voting to install Blake.
