Academic Impressions Webinar: Best Practices for Identifying and Developing Department Chairs

Department chairs are the crucial link between upper-level administration and faculty. A strong and effective department chair can significantly enhance academic life for both students and faculty. However, research suggests that many institutions do not recognize the critical importance of identifying and developing talented faculty with the skills needed for this position.

Join Academic Impressions online as they show ways to identify a “bench” of future academic leaders within your unit and to effectively develop their capabilities as a department chair by focusing on the following:

  • Identifying the talents essential to successful department chairs
  • Working with new department chairs to build competence, credibility, and leadership skills
  • Ongoing development, feedback, and support of new department chairs

This webcast is designed for deans, associate deans, department chairs, or any other academic leaders involved in the identification and recruitment of future department chairs.
