ASU dean leaves Albany south for Albany North

Dr. Leroy Bynum is leaving ASU after this semester.

A man who was instrumental in getting a new Fine Arts Center at Albany State University is saying goodbye.

Dr. Leroy Bynum is leaving Albany, Georgia for Albany, New York where he will serve as Dean of Arts and Humanities at the College of Saint Rose.

Dr. Bynum has worked to acquire funds for a new Fine Arts Center at ASU.

He says the project doesn't end because he's leaving.

We are right now anticipating funds for its construction and hopefully those will come next year and I look forward to coming back to Albany very very soon to see a beautifully splendid Fine Arts Building, said Dr. Leroy Bynum, ASU Dean of Arts and Humanities.

Dr. Bynum has been part of the family at Albany State for 22 years.
