Chairs and Academic Administrators Management Program

One of most difficult jobs in academia is taking on the mantle of administration.

As a chair or an academic administrator, you assume many hats, such as, the ‘big picture’ leader, the guide and mentor for faculty members, the liaison between your department and stakeholders, the first-line of defense, the gatekeeper, and the role model, making it feel extremely challenging to find balance.

  • How do you grow your program or department when facing tough regional and national competition?
  • How do you balance your own overload, so you can effectively mentor faculty through their challenges and sensitive situations?
  • How do you align your natural leadership strengths with institutional goals and stakeholder expectations?
  • How do you improve your academic culture to promote innovation, collaboration and productivity in a way that makes your faculty feel valued?

With all that’s on your plate, where can you turn to reset, recharge, and regroup? You don’t need to attend another large-scale conference, or a chairs meeting. You need practical and effective strategies, interactive learning, and one-on-one engagement with leaders who have successfully powered through the obstacles you are currently facing.

  • The ITL program is an excellent opportunity to develop and refresh teaching skills no matter the stage of your teaching career. I would highly recommend it to all educators and those considering a career in academia.

  • I've taken quite a few leadership courses and seminars; none come close to the material involved and coordination AAL. Sprinkle a little genuine interest in seeing us succeed and well intentions and you have the best leadership mentors PERIOD.
