SECU Web Site
BIRMINGHAM, Ala. – SECU, the Academic Initiative of the Southeastern Conference, has expanded its presence on the Internet with a new Web site, www.theSECU.com, that launched Monday.
The site features comprehensive information regarding each of SECU’s eight programs, along with the latest news and upcoming events.
Through SECU, the SEC sponsors, supports and promotes collaborative higher education programs and activities involving administrators, faculty and students at its member universities. The SEC also provides additional opportunities for SEC university administrators and faculty to collaborate and for SEC students to study abroad.
After operating as the SEC Academic Consortium for five years, the SEC Presidents and Chancellors in 2010 voted to relocate the operation from the University of Arkansas to the SEC headquarters in Birmingham. One year later, SECAC was renamed SECU and the vision was re-framed to include a more direct relationship with the SEC office.
The transition made the SEC the first major collegiate conference to actively support an academic-based effort that is unrelated to intercollegiate athletics.
