Department Head Toolkit

Message from the Provost

As part of Impact 2018's intent to become a higher performing University and to recognize a department head's important and challenging role, training and support will be enhanced.  This toolkit is intended to furnish guideposts to department heads as they negotiate the demands of administering academic programs within a large, complex university.  The toolkit will be reviewed and revised annually to incorporate changes and to become a more effective aid for department heads.  We ask all administrators - deans as well as department heads - to help make this toolkit more effective by sharing your reactions and suggestions for improvement.

Best wishes for a successful academic year!

Sincerely,

Dennis Hedge, Pharm.D.
Interim Provost and Executive Vice President for Academic Affairs
