Jen Yearwood Graduates from USG's Executive Leadership Institute

Human Resources, Office of Friday June 21, 2024

The University System of Georgia graduated its 2023-24 Executive Leadership Institute cohort, including our own Jen Yearwood, assistant director for Talent Management and Human Resources here at Georgia College.

This year's cohort of 34 faculty and staff members from 23 USG institutions convened on Aug. 29, 2023, and is the 14th cohort to graduate from the program.

"This group includes some of the best among our faculty and staff across Georgia," USG Chancellor Sonny Perdue said. "As one of the top public university systems in the nation, we are invested in supporting and growing the people already working hard right here in the university system. With this professional development, USG wants to help them reach their full potential."

Since 2009, USG has hosted ELI for faculty and staff to develop new leaders within the university system and offer professional development opportunities to help them grow their careers in Georgia. University presidents nominate academic and staff leaders to participate. From the nominees, individuals are selected for the program and participate in a leadership development curriculum that includes content, personal reflection, job shadowing and cross-mentoring.

Congratulations, Jen, for completing this rigorous training! We appreciate your commitment to continuing education and professional development.
