Atlanta Metropolitan State College President’s Investiture & Spring Graduation Announced

Atlanta Metropolitan State College (AMSC) announces the investiture of Dr. Georj L. Lewis, President of Atlanta Metropolitan State College (AMSC), at 10 a.m., May 5, 2022.  The college looks forward to hosting the community, its students, faculty, staff and partners to a full week of activities on the AMSC Campus, surrounding the investiture of Dr. Lewis who began his tenure a little less than three years ago.

In May of 2019, Dr. Lewis was selected by the Board of Regents of the University System of Georgia to serve as interim president, and in November of 2019, he was officially named the fourth president of Atlanta Metropolitan State College. Throughout his tenure in higher education, Dr. Lewis has focused on the holistic development of students, anchoring his service in student advocacy, development of successful educational partnerships, and implementation of new programs that promote professional development for faculty and staff.  Dr. Lewis’ had to delay his formal Investiture due to the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic.  Since then, Dr. Lewis has placed his stamp on AMSC, instituting robust programs and ushering in a new era of major partnerships including the PepsiCo Foundation, which is slated to provide $850,000 in scholarships, and partnering with the Atlanta Police Training Academy to provide training facilities on the AMSC campus for a minimum of two years for new police cadets, who will eventually become the city of Atlanta’s newest police officers.
