This annual one-day workshop for chairs and leaders of departments of mathematical sciences will be held Wednesday, January 5, 2011, from 8:00 a.m. - 6:30 p.m., Bayside C, Fourth Floor, Sheraton. The workshop format is intended to stimulate discussion among attending chairs and workshop leaders. Sharing ideas and experiences with peers provides a form of department chair therapy, creating an environment that enables attending chairs to address departmental matters from new perspectives. Separate paid workshop registration required.
Workshop leaders will be: Timothy Hodges, Professor and Head, Department of Mathematical Sciences, University of Cincinnati; John Meakin, Chair, Department of Mathematics, University of Nebraska-Lincoln; Helen Roberts, Chair, Department of Mathematical Sciences, Montclair State University; and Stephen Robinson, Chair, Department of Mathematics, Wake Forest University.
Past workshop sessions have focused on a range of issues facing departments today including: personnel issues (staff and faculty), long range departmental planning, faculty and staff hiring, promotion and tenure, budget management, assessments, outreach, stewardship, junior faculty development, communication within and outside the department, and department leadership.
There is a separate registration fee of US$100 for the workshop. To register, visit http://www.ams.org/profession/leaders/workshops/ChairsWorkshop2011.RSVPForm.pdf
