Department Chair Workshops

2019-2020

The Chair's Role in Tenure and Promotion

Monday, September 16, 2019 in 567 Capen Hall

Check back soon for the full schedule for the 2019-2020 Academic year

The Office of the Vice Provost for Faculty Affairs continues its workshop series to help department chairs more effectively lead and respond to challenges they confront in their departments and/or units.   We look forward to another year of robust and engaging conversations about departmental life at UB.

Over this academic year, our office will be sponsoring a series of monthly lunch meetings to discuss various issues related to academic leadership.  We will address issues related to effective communication, budgets and resources, mentoring and work/life balance, faculty and student diversity, recruitment and hiring, tenure and promotion to name a few.

Chairs' Workshops are:

  • held monthly as 2 hour lunch-time seminars, food and refreshments provided
  • targeted for the second half of each month during the fall and spring semester
  • intended to be interactive and responsive; your feedback and requests drive the conversation and future planning

ALL SESSIONS RUN 12:00PM-2:00PM IN 567 CAPEN HALL
