Brad SLA Graduation

Brad Hart, STC Director of Enrollment Services and TCSG  Senior Leadership Academy Graduate

The Technical College System of Georgia (TCSG) announced the completion of its first cohort of the Senior Leadership Academy, a transformative professional development program aimed at advancing careers within TCSG and its 22 colleges. Brad Hart of Southeastern Technical College (STC) was among the graduates.

A graduation ceremony celebrated the achievements of 25 dedicated participants who have demonstrated exceptional leadership potential.

“I am truly honored to have been selected to participate in the Senior Leadership Academy through the TCSG.  The insights gained from the senior-level TCSG staff and UGA’s Carl Vinson Institute of Government’s discussions on leadership qualities were invaluable. It was inspiring to explore the art of effective leadership and it has certainly broadened my perspective on how to lead and inspire others,” said Hart, STC Director of Enrollment Services. “The knowledge acquired during these experiences has not only enriched my leadership skills but also expanded my horizons, making me eager to apply these newfound qualities and insights to my professional journey.”

“The Senior Leadership Academy represents our commitment to cultivating and empowering our own talent pool,” said TCSG Commissioner, Greg Dozier. “We believe that investing in our staff’s professional development not only benefits our colleges, but also strengthens Georgia’s workforce development efforts.”

The Senior Leadership Academy is a flagship initiative of TCSG designed to identify, nurture, and equip leaders within the organization with the skills and knowledge required to excel in leadership roles. It is a year-long program divided into eight two-day sessions. The first cohort received 160 hours of content, including 18 hours of leadership training through the University of Georgia Carl Vinson Institute of Government.

“Through the Senior Leadership Academy, we are not just investing in our staff; we are investing in the future of technical education in Georgia,” said President of the Executive Leadership Academy and Talent Initiatives at TCSG, Dr. Alvetta Thomas. “These 25 graduates represent the vanguard of leadership excellence within the Technical College System of Georgia, and we are excited to see the positive impact they will have on our colleges and the communities we serve.”

Dr. Barry Dotson, Vice President for Student Affairs at Southeastern Tech, said, “Brad is already an accomplished leader at Southeastern Tech, where we strive to be the best college for our community. However, an organization can only grow by continually focusing on cultivating leadership at all levels. When I learned about this exciting program, Brad immediately came to mind as someone who exemplifies our commitment to developing leaders and would greatly benefit from and contribute to the program. By investing in leaders like Brad, we can ensure Southeastern Tech continues to thrive and serve our community for years to come.”

 The Academy is designed to provide participants with a greater understanding of the operation and administrative functions of TCSG and its colleges such as strategic planning, data driven decision making, budgeting, student affairs, compliance, workforce development, and legal services, among others.
