Spiro Kiousis selected for SEC academic leadership program
Executive Associate Dean Spiro Kiousis is among 49 faculty and administrators from Southeastern Conference universities selected as 2013-14 SEC Academic Leadership Development Program fellows.
Kiousis joins UF colleagues Christopher Janelle, Interim Associate Dean, College of Health & Human Performance, and Rowan Milner, Department Chair, Small Animal Clinical Sciences, in this year’s program. The selection process involves nominations of associate deans or experienced chairs by their deans, and a committee of former ALDP Fellows makes the selection.
The SEC Academic Leadership Development Program, established in 2008, is a professional development program that seeks to identify, prepare and advance academic leaders for roles within SEC institutions and beyond by allowing them the unique opportunity to address the challenges of academic administration at major research universities. It has two components: a university-level development program designed by each institution for its own participants and two, three-day, SEC-wide workshops held on specified campuses for all program participants. This year’s workshops will be held Oct. 14-16 at the University of Georgia, and Feb. 5-7, 2014, at the University of South Carolina.
