Joseph Glover, Provost and Senior Vice President

The Southeastern Conference sponsors an Academic Leadership Development Program (ALDP) to “identify, develop, prepare and advance faculty as academic leaders in and for SEC universities.”  Member institutions nominate fellows to participate in two ALDP workshops, as well as on-campus programs, during the academic year.

The Provost’s Office will sponsor up to four fellows for the ALDP program for the 2020-2021 academic year.  The program is open to currently tenured faculty members you believe have the potential and interest in further developing their academic leadership knowledge and abilities.  Each Dean may nominate ONE Associate Dean, Department Chair or individual in a comparable role from her/his college. Please provide your letter of nomination by Friday, April 17, 2020, specifically addressing the nominee’s leadership experience and potential as well as expected benefit to the College. The nomination packet should also include the nominee’s abbreviated curriculum vitae, emphasizing leadership experience.  Materials should be sent electronically to

Fellows must be fully engaged in the ALDP program.

  1. Fellows must be able to attend two workshops:  October 18-21, 2020 at the University of South Carolina, and February 10-12, 2020, at the University of Georgia. These workshops require travel with the group, reading preparatory materials, and engaging in discussion groups. Please ensure that your nominee is available prior to making the nomination.
  2. Fellows must attend local UF ALDP programs, including a reserved spot in UF’s “Advanced Leadership for Academics and Professionals” if they have not already completed that program.
  3. Fellows will also serve as mentors to future UF ALDP fellows.
