Nancy C. Jones, chair of the Department of Theatre in the College of Fine Arts, Douglass S. Kalika, chair of the Department of Chemical and Materials Engineering in the College of Engineering, Sue Roberts, professor in the Department of Geography in the College of Arts and Sciences and Deirdre A. Scaggs, the associate dean of Special Collections in UK Libraries were selected to represent UK in this development program that helps the leaders prepare for roles in an SEC institution.
The representatives will participate in two workshops, one in October at the University of Georgia and another in February at the University of South Carolina. 49 faculty and administrators were selected throughout the SEC.
“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.”
