Dagg Named 2018 SEC Fellow
The University of Kentucky is set to host the fall SEC Academic Leadership Development Program workshop October 15-17. The three-day session will be held primarily at the newly-renovated Gatton Student Center and will also include visits to unique locales in and around Lexington.
Dr. Eli Capilouto, UK President and Vice President of the SEC, will offer an opening welcome and remarks before participants engage in interactive discussions on topics ranging from campus safety assessment, to diversity and inclusion to public-private partnerships. UK Provost, Dr. David Blackwell, is also among those campus administrators scheduled to join the workshop.
The SEC Academic Leadership Development Program’s (SEC ALDP) goal is to identify, prepare and advance academic leaders for roles within SEC institutions and beyond. It has three components: a university-level development program designed by each institution for its own participants (i.e., fellows); two SEC-wide workshops held on specified campuses for all program participants; and a competitive fellowship designed to provide administrative growth opportunities for former fellows.
“It is our strong belief that helping to prepare administrators for the next phase of their careers has the potential to impact all of higher education, both now and in the future,” SEC Commissioner Greg Sankey has said of the SEC ALDP. “Our universities make a significant investment in these individuals, and we are proud to work with them through this program.”
In addition to the Kentucky workshop, 2018-2019 SEC ALDP participants will also visit the University of Tennessee in the spring. There are approximately 55 fellows this year, and nearly 400 have completed the program since its inception in 2008.
Professor Dagg will be joined by two other fellows from Auburn University--Dr. Shashank Rao of the Harbert College of Business and Dr. David C. Virtue of the Department of Curriculum and Teaching.
