Provost updates, Faculty

Author: Office of the Provost

The Office of the Provost, in collaboration with the Grace E. Harris Leadership Institute, announces its inaugural Department Chairs' Leadership Community, a monthly seminar series intended to promote a better understanding of the critical role of department chairs in support of the university's academic mission. 

The seminars will provide strategies for assessing faculty performance, developing early and mid-career faculty, hiring diverse and talented faculty, managing and resolving conflict, and nurturing faculty well-being and wellness, among many other topics.

The Leadership Community is open to all VCU department chairs, with some seminar sessions tailored specifically for the College of Humanities and Sciences, School of Engineering, School of Allied Health Professions and the School of Education.
