Four faculty members from the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, were listed among the Southeastern Conference 2023-24 Academic Leadership Development Program Fellows.
The Academic Leadership Development Program seeks to identify, prepare and advance academic leaders for roles within SEC institutions and beyond. Ranging in leadership positions and academic interests, the fellows were named through a competitive process.
Named to this year’s list:
Derek Alderman, Professor, Department of Geography and Sustainability
Michael Higdon, Interim Associate Dean for Academic Affairs, College of Law
Sharon Jean-Philippe, Faculty Director, Office of Undergraduate Research and Fellowships
Lori Amber Roessner, Professor, School of Journalism and Media
“The SEC is committed to providing opportunities and resources that help prepare faculty throughout our conference for the next phase of their careers,” said LeNá Powe McDonald, associate commissioner of academic relations at the SEC. “The program prepares future leaders whose impact on education and the communities they serve will be felt for years to come.”
