Leadership Essentials for New Department Chairs

Leadership Essentials for New Department Chairs is a two-day immersion in academic leadership. Each day features interactive sessions thoughtfully designed to help chairs build an empowered community of faculty and staff, while achieving common goals, and sustaining a high level of morale.

Leadership Essentials participants are academic department chairs, and directors of department-like units, who have less than one year of experience in their role.
