Leadership Development Series: Building Community and a Healthy Climate

November 14, 2017 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm

This session will focus on how chairs can take actions that positively affect a department’s climate, how to make strides in the areas of equity and diversity, and what to do as a chair (and as a colleague) to stop problems before they happen and what to do to solve them when they do.

The Leadership Development Series, sometimes known as “chairs chats,” offers a variety of workshops and seminars for department chairs and academic center directors, along with associate deans and others in management positions. The sessions – some of which follow the peer-to-peer (“chat”) model, and some of which will be led by experienced chairs and other academic leaders – emphasize the development of aptitudes and skills associated with academic leadership. The offerings can be categorized into four main areas:

  • Strategic planning
  • Supervision and management
  • Budgets and finance
  • Climate and inclusion
