Welcome to the Office for Faculty Advancement!
The Office for Faculty Advancement is pleased to announce a brand new program undertaken by
the Southeastern Conference - "Emerging Scholars Program for Future Faculty." 
The Program is designed to provide professional development and networking opportunities for current doctoral students and a limited number of postdocs who are considering careers in higher education. The overall goal is to encourage top scholars, particularly those from historically underrepresented groups to seek employment and mentorship within the fourteen (14) SEC member universities.
