Courtney Duvall is one of 19 professionals statewide selected to participate in the Academic Leadership Development Institute (ALDI) this year to prepare for influential roles in higher education.
Duvall is the senior admissions advisor at Owensboro Community & Technical College.
Coordinated by the Kentucky Council on Postsecondary Education (CPE), ALDI provides a series of interactive sessions and small group seminars led by faculty and administrators from across Kentucky and other states. The goal is to create a learning community of early career, underrepresented minority faculty and staff who are on track for professional advancement.
Duvall is currently pursuing a master’s degree in leadership from Western Kentucky University (WKU). Before her current role of OCTC Senior Admissions Advisor, she served as a student success coach. Duvall began working as a Financial Aid Assistant at OCTC in 2017. She earned her Associate in Arts from OCTC and holds a bachelor’s degree in Organizational Leadership from WKU.
Prior to joining OCTC’s team, Duvall worked as a support team coach at the Wendell Foster Campus and as a caregiver at Comfort Keepers. Duvall is from Owensboro and a graduate of Apollo High School.
The CPE established ALDI in 2019 after receiving a $50,000 grant from the Lumina Foundation, which targeted efforts to close outcome gaps in postsecondary education.
