Four faculty members and administrators from USC have been selected to join the Southeastern Conference’s Academic Leadership Development Program fellows for 2012-13.
Lawrence Glickman, chair of the History Department, Danielle Holley-Walker, associated dean of the Law School, James Knapp, professor in the Department of Earth and Ocean Sciences, and Audrey Korsgaard, chair of the Management Department, join the other 42 fellows from the other 13 SEC schools.
The Academic Leadership Development Program is a professional development program intended to indentify, prepare and advance academic leaders for roles within SEC institutions. Fellows participate in SEC-wide workshops and in a university development program that is designed by each university of its fellows.
“The SEC Academic Leadership Development Program is a valuable opportunity for faculty and administrators at Southeastern Conference universities to study a wide range of topics in higher education from the leader’s perspective,” said Torie Johnson, SECU executive director. “We trust that the skills, techniques and knowledge they acquire this year will help prepare them for high level service in academia.”
The program, established in 2008, fosters academic leadership among SEC faculty by allowing them the opportunity to address the challenges of academic administration at major research universities.
