More than 110 faculty members from all 14 Southeastern Conference universities will take part in the 2015-16 SEC Faculty Travel Program. The program, in its fourth year, provides support for selected individuals to collaborate with colleagues at other SEC member institutions.
“Due to the struggle to secure research funding, the SEC Faculty Travel Program is a vital entity to enhance collaborative efforts among SEC universities,” said Dr. Neil Johannsen, Assistant Professor in the School of Kinesiology at Louisiana State University and former participant.
Through the program, the SEC provides financial assistance for its faculty members to travel to other SEC universities to exchange ideas, develop grant proposals, conduct research and deliver lectures or performances.
“I believe this program shows how much the SEC values collaborative research among its universities,” said Dr. Johannsen.
Program participants from each SEC university will travel throughout the academic year, and disciplines represented include engineering, music, nursing and forestry, among others.
The SEC Faculty Travel Program is part of SECU, the academic initiative of the Southeastern Conference. SECU works to support and promote the academic endeavors of the students and faculty at the conference’s member institutions.
