Statement on MCG's Dr. Rahn

Following the announcement Friday by the University of Arkansas Board of Trustees that they will meet Tuesday, March 24, to consider hiring Medical College of Georgia President Dr. Daniel W. Rahn as the next chancellor of the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences, University System of Georgia Chancellor Erroll B. Davis, Jr. had the following statement:

“We understand that Dr. Rahn has been named as a finalist for the position of chancellor at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences, and it is expected that the appointment will be finalized next week. Dr. Rahn has provided wonderful and stellar service to this state and to the Medical College of Georgia. It is certainly a testament to his national stature and the emerging and high reputation of MCG that he is being considered for this new position.

We, of course, would be very disappointed to see Dr. Rahn leave, but fortunately, he has assured me that, up until his departure from MCG, he will continue to provide the needed leadership for MCG as it confronts a number of challenges in the coming months. Georgia would lose a dedicated and selfless public servant of the very highest caliber, should Dr. Rahn ultimately accept the Arkansas position.”
