Department Chair Development Certificate Program
The Office of Faculty Affairs is pleased to announce the Department Chair Development Certificate Program. Department Chairs will now have the opportunity to earn 3 different Development Certificates by participating in regular Department Chair Development Workshops. All academic department chairs, associate chairs, assistant chairs, and vice chairs are eligible to enroll in the certificate program. Any department chair, director, or dean, however, may continue to attend Department Chair Workshops without enrolling in a certificate program.
For more information or to enroll, please contact Martha King at firstname.lastname@example.org or 977-2225. Course attendance and progress towards a certificate will be tracked within the Office of Faculty Affairs.
