Many Department Chairs are not prepared for their new role. Transitioning from faculty member to department chair can be challenging and requires learning new skill sets. The Department Chair Institute (DCI) was developed by educators to address the needs of department chairs and first-level administrators.

Department Chair Institute is designed for new or experienced first-level instructional leaders. Get the skills and insider information today's Department Chairs need to better manage the services they provide and are accountable for. You'll quickly see the benefits offered by a positive and supportive learning environment that affords you the opportunity to network with experts and peers.

Whether you were elected, selected, or appointed to your position or are new or have been in your position for a while, Department Chair Institute quickly provides Chairs and first-level administrators the skills to become confident, efficient, and happy chairs.
  The three-day Department Chair Institute includes a morning and afternoon session each day; a morning and afternoon break; and one hour for lunch. Workshop format includes case studies, opportunities for practice (real and role plays), mini-lectures, assessment instruments, individual reflection and individual action planning. You also will have post-Institute access by email, for continued dialogue with other first-line instructional leaders.

Department Chairs and other instructional leaders can begin learning the knowledge, skills and abilities to effectively perform their roles and responsibilities as a Department Chair or other instructional leader with an opportunity to network with their peers for continuous learning, pre- and post- Institute. After completing this workshop, participants will be able to:

  • Understand what contributes to an individual’s vitality and why it’s so important for personal and professional success.
  • Recognize, understand, listen, and employ your skills/strengths for better decision making.
  • Assess, understand, and appreciate your personal style and strengths and the style and strengths of others.
  • Increase the ability to adjust your style to the style of others to improve communication, efficiency, and effectiveness.
  • Understand the social nature of high-performance workplace based on neuroscience findings and what we know about human systems.
  • Develop, practice, and implement an Action Plan that will help create a ‘shared vision’ for your department.
