JMM 2021

Department Chairs Workshop

This annual one-day workshop for department chairs and leaders will be led by Luca Capogna, Worcester Polytechnic Institute, Kevin Knudson, University of Florida, and Jennifer Zhao, University of Michigan-Dearborn.

As we continue planning for the annual department chairs workshop, we are mindful of the impact of COVID-19 on travel and safety and will continue to monitor the situation. The workshop will occur virtually on January 14, 2021.

Like almost every aspect of society, higher education has been in a state of turmoil since the COVID-19 pandemic hit. The AMS Department Chairs Workshop will provide an opportunity to share experiences and reflect on what math department chairs, math departments, and colleges and universities are doing to react to the COVID-19 pandemic. Some of the emerging issues have to do with resources, handling stress (students, staff and faculty), and how to deliver our curriculum under new paradigms. We look forward to your participation.

In an effort to best respond to the changing landscape due to COVID-19, registered participants will receive a short questionnaire in December, about the demographics of their departments and about potential topics for discussion at the workshop. All registrants will also receive information on how to participate in this virtual workshop shortly before January 14.
