Departmental Leadership
A multi-part series for colleagues leading departments in any capacity.


Foundations of Leadership
August 10-12 IDEA Lab (with hyflex option)

A multi-part workshop for those responsible for leading teams. This workshop is designed to help you identify your "North Star" as a leader -- the principles that guide your alignment of values, decisions, and actions, while infusing your leadership with equity, inclusion, and justice-oriented practices. You will identify, reflect on, and practice using your North Star in a range of leadership roles -- such as supervisor, coach, and mentor -- as well as leadership directions -- such as leading from behind and beside. 

This focus on the intersection of self-knowledge and leadership will be explored in part through a workshop on  Leading with Strengths, based on CliftonStrengths and facilitated by Dr. Vicky Goodin. Please register for this session no later than July 31 2021.

Note: This foundational workshop is designed for leaders across the institution. Throughout the year we will hold additional, individual sessions designed to support the unique needs of faculty leaders.
