Paradigm Shift: (Re)Envisioning the Role of Department Chairs
Are you a new or current department chair? Led by two leaders in higher education, this webinar explores the role department chairs play in institutions and introduces tools necessary for effective leadership. Every department chair is confronted with a variety of challenges: course schedule formation, faculty professional development, and institutional goals and priorities. How do you balance these responsibilities? This webinar provides tips to those within or interested in higher education management positions. As policymakers and regional accrediting bodies add more pressure on colleges to meet performance metrics, it is incumbent upon new leaders to understand the best practices for leading academic divisions. Participants are empowered with essential insights that enhance and align their leadership with servant-oriented principles.
Larry Johnson, Jr., Provost, St. Louis Community College- Forest Park Campus and Susan Wright, Dean, School of Business Information Systems, Georgia Piedmont Technical College
