Department Chair Orientation

The Chair Orientation is geared towards new and seasoned Chairs, and covers topics such as: how to best transition from the focused, self-driven life of a faculty member to academic leadership; the first days/months/year of your job as department chair; self-preservation strategies; best practices in hiring, dual career hiring, diversity hiring and reaction to offers; providing and receiving faculty feedback, annual reviews, setting up mentoring, post-tenure reviews, the role of the chair in the evaluation process, and preemptive vs. reactive retention.

Chair Orientation is offered annually. The next orientation will be offered on Wednesday, October 18, 2017.
