Mohammed Ibrahim, Ph.D., chair and professor, Department of Agricultural Sciences at Fort Valley State University (FVSU) has been selected to the University System of Georgia (USG) 2021-2022 Executive Leadership Institute (ELI) class. Dr. Ibrahim is among 34 faculty and staff members from 25 USG institutions and the University System Office named to join the prestigious group.

University presidents nominate one academic leader and one staff leader to apply. From the nominees, individuals are selected for the six-month program during which they engage in a leadership development curriculum that includes content, personal growth, job shadowing and cross-mentoring. For over a decade, USG has hosted ELI for faculty and staff who are ready for a cabinet-level position in the near future.

"USG strongly supports investing in the development and retention of our future USG leaders, and these class members represent the best of faculty and staff across the state who will lead us into the future," Vice Chancellor for Leadership & Institutional Development Stuart Rayfield said. "We congratulate them for this honor, and look forward to working with them as they continue to evolve and grow in their leadership development."

Nominated by FVSU President Dr. Paul Jones, Ibrahim will join the other selected USG faculty and staff for this year's class starting Nov. 16, 2021.
