Department Chair Institute

Today's Department Chairs have one of the most conflicting roles on campus as they serve as liaison between administration and faculty. Department Chairs are responsible for curriculum, strategic planning, budget matters, personnel management, and program reviews - yet their position is not one of undisputed authority. Conflict can arise from many stakeholders - making it difficult for the chair to lead, plan, and unite their department.

Many Department Chairs are not prepared for their new role. Transitioning from faculty member to department chair can be challenging and requires learning new skill sets. The Department Chair Institute (DCI) was developed by educators to address then needs of department chairs and first-level administrators.

Department Chair Institute is a short, hands-on, 'nuts and bolts' session that is designed for new or experienced first-level academic leaders. Get the skills and insider information today's Department Chairs need to better manage the services they provide and are accountable for. You'll quickly see the benefits offered by a positive and supportive learning environment that affords you the opportunity to network with experts and peers.
