Opportunity or Burden? The Department Chair's Role in Leading Academic Change

"The department chair position is the most critical role in the university...80% of university decisions are made at the department level...yet only 3 percent of chairs receive training in leadership." (Gmelch and Miskin, Department Chair Leadership Skills, 2011)

This meeting will bring together both new and veteran department and division chairs for a two-day workshop designed to address some of the most pressing challenges facing the Department Chair.

Sessions will cover:

-The limits and possibilities of the Chair's role in leading academic change

-Characteristics of a responsive and high-functioning department

-Negotiating academic values and contrasting notions of "quality."

-Leading from below: How Departments can advance an institutional culture that motivates and rewards good teaching, research, and innovation.

-Departmental Assessment that works; developing departmentally relevant program review and evaluation strategies, clarifying institutional accountability.

-Developing New Faculty into Teachers and Scholars, and Motivating senior faculty
Taking the Next Step in Academic Administration

The meeting will be held at Howard University from May 28-30, 2015. The meeting will begin with an opening session and reception on the evening of Thursday the 28th, and go through the morning of Saturday the 30th.
