AMS Department Chairs Workshop

This annual one-day workshop for chairs and leaders of departments of mathematical sciences will be held a day before the start of the Joint Meetings on Saturday, 8:00 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. 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.

Workshop leaders are Guillermo S. Ferreyra, Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences, Louisiana State University; Lawrence F. Gray, Head of the School of Mathematics, University of Minnesota; and David C. Manderscheid, Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences, University of Nebraska at Lincoln.

Past workshop sessions have focused on a range of issues facing departments today, including personnel issues (staff and faculty), long-range planning, hiring, promotion and tenure, budget management, assessments, outreach, stewardship, junior faculty development, communication, and departmental leadership.
