Leadership training workshop series begins Sept. 4

PULLMAN, Wash. – An annual leadership training series for faculty and staff is of interest to those who want to know how the university works, who aspire to a future administrative position and who expect to fill a leadership position of any type (e.g., laboratory director, officer in the Faculty Senate).
 
“Department Chairs and Directors Training Workshops” are open to anyone with an interest in any of the topics that are covered. Among the series’ goals are to train new department chairs and school directors and to help experienced chairs deal with issues that may be unfamiliar to them.
 
This year’s series includes 11 workshops, 7:30-9 a.m., scheduled September-March. The series will begin on Wednesday, Sept. 4, with a university overview and information about faculty recruitment, mentoring and retention.
 
Later workshops will offer training in basic leadership skills along with information about Washington State University policies and procedures.
 
Each workshop is conducted by the administrative official who is the expert on the issue. Therefore, participants will learn whom to call with questions about the issues.
 
Workshops will be available across the state via WSU Videoconferencing Services. To obtain a schedule, to sign up or to obtain the handouts for a workshop, please go to http://hrs.wsu.edu/chairs.
 
Please contact Fran McSweeney, vice provost for faculty affairs, fkmcs@wsu.edu, if you have questions.
