This Magna Online Seminar is for aspiring, new, and experienced academic chairs who desire a meaningful and productive working relationship with their deans and seek guidance in navigating the bureaucracy and politics of their institutions. You’ll receive insight about how to develop this important relationship to benefit and advance your department.

What are the learning goals?

Upon completion of this seminar, you’ll be able to:

  • Describe the dean’s environment
  • Further understand the academic bureaucracy in your institution
  • Realize your dean’s perspective and agenda
  • Develop strategies to increase their dean’s support for the department

Who should attend?

  • Department chairs
  • Department program heads
  • Deans
  • Associate and assistant deans

Why you don’t want to miss this!

While chairs may understand the faculty’s world, typically they are unfamiliar with the dean’s environment.  Through this 60-minute online seminar, chairs will gain understanding for their dean, the dean’s political environment, and agenda. As a result, chairs will be better positioned to gain the support of their dean by planning programs and initiatives that advance their departments, as well as their dean’s agenda. Learn strategies and awareness of the institution’s bureaucratic management and how to navigate both to get the support their departments need.

Additional Detail

The most important person in the chair’s professional universe is the dean.  The dean’s office provides access to the resources, data, and guidance necessary for the welfare of academic departments.

What do chairs need to know about deans so that they can maximize the benefits of their relationship? How can the dean navigate the bureaucratic management systems through which many colleges and universities are managed?

Don Chu, both a former chair and dean, provides guidance needed by academic managers to better understand the position of department and college leaders, and how they may work together to further their academic missions.
