During his seven years at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga, he initiated and developed a unit re-brand to incorporate an existing leadership education effort by establishing programming around exploration, discovery, connecting and achievement.

As an FSU alum, returning home fills me with immense pride.”

Prior to his role at University of Tennessee, Liddell served as director of Career Planning at Saint Leo University where he led the employer service unit to maximize employment and internship opportunities through creative, strategic engagement with alumni, faculty and community collaborators. He has championed research-based programs, services and educational initiatives to impact student success and help prepare students for their professional lives.

Liddell earned his doctorate in curriculum and instruction, higher education administration and a master’s degree in management focused on leadership and organizational effectiveness from the University of South Florida. He graduated from FSU with a bachelor’s degree in religion and said he is looking forward to his return.

“I am grateful for the president and provost’s support of our efforts to develop a best-in-class operation to better serve our students and alumni,” Hecht said.
