SEC Emerging Scholars Workshop Banner

The Southeastern Conference (SEC) is well know for integrating higher education and athletic competition to bring you exciting intercollegiate sports. Sports however, is not all that the SEC coordinates - the SEC coordinates a number of Academic Initiatives to support and promote collaborative programs and activities designed to highlight the teaching, research, and service accomplishments of SEC students, faculty, and staff. One such initiative is the SEC Emerging Scholars Career Preparation Workshop, held each year since 2021.
