STC Director Graduates from Executive Leadership Academy
June 26, 2014 - A group of technical college executives from throughout Georgia have been honored as graduates of the Technical College System of Georgia’s (TCSG) Executive Leadership Academy.
Brad Hart, director of Enrollment Services at Southeastern Technical College was among the 27 academy graduates who were congratulated by TSCG Commissioner Ron Jackson during a dinner in Savannah on May 13, 2014.
“The TCSG Executive Leadership Academy is entirely focused on developing the next great leaders for Georgia’s technical colleges,” said Commissioner Ron Jackson. “The academy’s programs provide our rising executives with unique opportunities to increase their knowledge of the TCSG while also obtaining valuable leadership experience.”
Participation in the academy is highly selective and by invitation only. Hart was nominated to attend the academy by STC President Dr. Cathryn Mitchell and then approved by the Executive Leadership Academy’s board of directors.
The academy is designed to acquaint participants with the leadership and managerial responsibilities of TCSG executives. While the program is specifically geared to the policies and procedures of the TCSG, the curriculum is sufficiently broad in scope to have application to public two-year colleges in any state and includes topics ranging from ethics and operations to institutional effectiveness, accreditation, strategic planning, legal issues, and much more.
“I was able to network with many new people around the state and build relationships that will last throughout my career within TCSG,” said Hart. “I gained a broader and more complete understanding of how TCSG operates and the many benefits TCSG provides to workforce and economic development throughout the state.”
Hart has been at STC for nine years and has served as the college’s Georgia Fatherhood coordinator and registrar, in addition to his current director position.
