About the SEC Speakers Bureau

The SEC Speakers Bureau was launched in 2019 as a complement to the longstanding SEC Academic Leadership Development Program (SEC ALDP). While the goal of the SEC ALDP is to identify, prepare and advance academic leaders at any level, the SEC Academic Speakers Bureau focuses primarily on department chairs and department heads. Bureau visits are sponsored and led by the SEC Provosts. The Provosts identify senior leaders to provide guidance on key topical areas to SEC member institutions.
