The full list of the 2016-17 fellows can be found here.

Since its creation in 2008, more than 300 faculty and academic administrators have completed the program, and program alumni have taken leadership roles as deans and provosts, among other senior-level positions, at universities around the SEC and country.

The SEC Academic Leadership Development Program is part of SECU, the academic initiative of the Southeastern Conference. The SEC supports and promotes the endeavors and achievements of the students and faculty at its 14 member universities.
