Congratulations to Jeffrey Fairbrother, PhD, who recently received the 2018-2019 Southeastern Conference Academic Leadership Development Program Alumni Fellowship.
The SEC Academic Leadership Development Program (SEC ALDP) Alumni Fellowship is designed for individuals who are in senior leadership positions at SEC universities (i.e., home institution). The aim of the fellowship is to provide opportunities at other SEC universities that allow recipients to strengthen their professional experience and deepen their knowledge in a specific area of administrative leadership that is of interest to the fellow and the fellow’s home institution. The purpose of Fairbrother’s project is to examine communications about expectations as they are conveyed during hiring, mentoring, and evaluation of tenure-line faculty members.
Fairbrother was one of two ALDP alumni from all SEC schools to receive the award this year.
