    BIRMINGHAM, Ala. – Forty-nine faculty and administrators from Southeastern Conference universities have been selected as 2013-14 SEC Academic Leadership Development Program fellows, the SEC announced Tuesday.  

    The SEC Academic Leadership Development Program (ALDP) is a professional development program that seeks to identify, prepare and advance academic leaders for roles within SEC institutions and beyond. It has two components: a university-level development program designed by each institution for its own participants and two, three-day, SEC-wide workshops held on specified campuses for all program participants.

    This year’s workshops will be held October 14-16 at the University of Georgia in Athens, and February 5-7, 2014 at the University of South Carolina in Columbia.

    “The individuals selected by their SEC universities to participate in the SEC Academic Leadership Development Program represent the future of higher education administration,” said Torie Johnson, SECU Executive Director. “The leadership skills they already possess are sure to be enhanced by the SEC ALDP experience.”

    Using its SECU academic initiative, the SEC sponsors, supports and promotes collaborative higher education programs and activities involving administrators, faculty and students at its member universities.

    The SEC ALDP, established in 2008, fosters academic leadership among SEC faculty by allowing them the unique opportunity to address the challenges of academic administration at major research universities.
