Dwayne Scott, associate dean of students for judicial affairs at the University of Memphis, has been selected to participate in the 2007 Maxine Smith Fellows Program of the Tennessee Board of Regents (TBR), the governing body for 47 universities, community colleges, and technology centers throughout the state.
The Maxine Smith Fellows program provides African-American employees of TBR schools the opportunity to participate in a working and learning environment that will enhance their work experience and career development. It is intended to provide an initial experience with administrative roles in system or upper level administrative policy-making positions.
Dr. Bruce Blanding, president of Jackson State Community College, will be Scott’s mentor. Each Fellow is assigned to an administrative mentor at the TBR central office, the Tennessee Higher Education Commission, or at a TBR institution. The Fellows work with their mentors to develop the plan of work for their fellowship.
“I'm absolutely excited about being selected as a Smith Fellow, and I look forward to the opportunities and challenges the program will provide,” said Scott, who has been with the U of M since 2001. He earned B.S., M.P.A., and Ed.D. degrees from Arkansas State University.
The program honors Dr. Maxine Smith, the noted civil rights leader who served two terms as a member of the TBR.
