Georgia Sea Grant’s associate director, Mona Behl, is one of 17 faculty-staff leaders who have been selected to participate in the University of Georgia’s (UGA) 2015-2016 Public Service and Outreach (PSO) Vivian H. Fisher Leadership Academy.

The nine-month-long program provides participants with the opportunity to hone their leadership skills while fostering a more in-depth understanding of the comprehensiveness of UGA’s public service and outreach mission.

Behl, who is a physical oceanographer by training, led Texas Sea Grant’s Research Program before joining the Georgia Sea Grant team earlier this year.
