will be held Sunday, January 4, 2009, from 8:00 a.m. to

chairs to address departmental matters from new perspectives.

Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences, Louisiana State
University; Lawrence Gray, Former Chair and Director
of Undergraduate Studies, School of Mathematics, University
of Minnesota; 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
