Professional Development

The Tennessee Board of Regents and Northeast State recognize the need for the continued professional growth and development of faculty and staff. 

This continued growth and development is necessary to: 

  • meet the changing needs and expectations of students,
  • include new developments in academic and professional disciplines,
  • reflect new instructional, public service, and research strategies and techniques,
  • encourage and promote staff productivity.

The College plans and implements a structured and coordinated professional development program established to achieve a variety of predetermined institutional objectives. 


On September 5, Alan Bracken will be on campus hosting his third leadership event, “Extreme Leadership,” from 8:00 am – 12:00 pm in the Auditorium.   In order to attend you must pre-register 

Deadline to register is noon on August 29th – Don’t miss out! 

Good leadership has the potential to be great.  Great leadership is rare.  So many times we live with the leadership role that we fall into rather than working toward greatness. 

At our Extreme Leadership event we start at the beginning.  Simply put, we put teamwork on the back burner.  It’s important and we will get to that.  For now we have to solidify a great foundation. 

When I am out speaking many times I ask the room a question. “Who here is a leader?” My point is to get everyone in the room to raise their hands.  We all are leaders of at least one person.  We all lead ourselves. 

Extremely successful leaders lead themselves well before they are able to influence and equip others.  Our hope is that you leave our events encouraged and inspired to begin leading your self so that you can break the barrier into Extreme Leadership of others.
