Department Chairs and Program Directors play a crucial role in the professional development and support of their colleagues. Faculty Development offers resources for the complex and rewarding work of department leadership.
The Chairs Leadership Forum
The Chairs Leadership Forum is a series of interactive, case-based sessions designed to support chairs as they develop leadership skills that reflect institutional values and knowledge of policies and practices at both the department and university level. Each session is grounded in the kinds of questions and scenarios that chairs actually face, with a focus on context--what works for Santa Clara University, the department, and the individual.
