2019 Leadership Workshop 

The workshop is intended for deans, assistant deans, department chairs, and faculty in leadership positions. Groups of participants from the same institution are encouraged to attend together. The goal of the workshop is to promote program effectiveness through sharing of promising practices.

Workshop participants will interact with each other and facilitators in roundtable format to consider examples and strategies for practical application. Space is limited to 28 participants. The cost is $85 per person; light refreshments and snacks included.


The workshop will begin with a brief welcome and overview. Participants will select from four roundtables, each seating several people and one facilitator. Facilitators will lead table groups in a brief preview of key ideas, challenges, strategies, and questions related to the topic. Participants will have opportunity to share their own experience followed by discussion. The format is informal, collaborative, and interactive. Participants rotate between roundtables every 45 minutes. The workshop concludes with a brief salutation and invitation for future collaboration.
