2023 USG New Deans and Chairs Workshop

 Registration is closed for this event
This summer, the University System will be offering a New Deans and Department Chairs Workshop at Middle Georgia State University in Macon, Georgia, July 17-18, 2023

This workshop, specifically designed for new or relatively new deans and department chairs, will begin with breakfast at 9 AM on the July 17th, with the program starting at 10:00 AM. The workshop will conclude by 3:00 PM on the July 18th.

Topics include:

  • how to create an academic vision for your college or department,
  • career and life planning,
  • legal considerations,
  • budget planning,
  • how to handle tough conversations, and
  • panel discussions of those task and responsibilities that we might not anticipate.

The workshop will give participants the opportunity to connect and exchange ideas with other leaders both inside and outside your institution. A preliminary agenda is available here. We've also curated some preliminary readings for the meeting. You can access the resources using the link below.
