New Chairs & Directors
On May 26, 2021, the Association hosted a forum for new Chairs & Directors. Topics included: balancing your job as chair or director with your own career/family; how to say `no’; assigning service jobs in your department/school; faculty evaluation; academic integrity; special challenges for smaller units; working with Indigenous faculty in your unit; and faculty (and staff) hiring best practices.
