About Us


Welcome to Southeastern's Office of the Provost and the Division of Academic Affairs.

Dr. Tena Golding


Dr. Golding has been a familiar face at Southeastern since joining the faculty in 1982. Serving in faculty and administrative roles, she has had the opportunity to engage both students and faculty in an exploration of innovative pedagogies and academic programs to enrich teaching and learning.  As the founding director of Southeastern’s Center for Faculty Excellence, she worked with faculty on a variety of initiatives designed to enhance teaching effectiveness and the academic environment. As a professor of mathematics, Dr. Golding promoted a student-centered classroom rooted in discovery, problem solving and hands-on learning.

Grateful for an amazing group of faculty, staff and students who are committed to academic excellence and service, Dr. Golding is delighted to serve as Southeastern’s Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs.
