Register now for NY6 Dept. Chairs Workshop

Registration is open for the May 24-25 NY6 Department Chairs Virtual Workshop, which will run from 3:00-5:00 pm each day. Over the course of the two afternoons, there will be presentations and group discussions touching on these topics:  

  • Department Chair Basics: What Experienced Chairs Wished They Had Known
  • Fostering an Inclusive Department
  • Establishing Departmental Norms and Procedures 
  • Managing Difficult Conversations and Departmental Conflict

As in previous years, the event is organized with an eye to the immediate challenges faced by incoming department chairs, but all interested department chairs are welcome to attend. There will be frequent opportunities over the course of the different sessions to engage in small-group discussions and to ask whatever questions faculty may have prior to taking on a new leadership role.

The event is an excellent opportunity to meet fellow colleagues, establish a network of support, and benefit from the perspectives and years of experience accrued by faculty and administrators who will be participating as presenters and facilitators. To register for the event, please click here
