ACE Leadership Academy for Department Chairs

The Academy builds on the legacy of ACE's longtime, highly regarded Department Chairs Workshop to engage chairs in a yearlong community of learning.

Thank you for your interest in the ACE Leadership Academy for Department Chairs. This 2-day workshop is conducted three times during the year: January, July, and October. It focuses on the chair, not only as a unit leader, but also as an academic leader in service to the institution and its mission. Academy participants will engage in case studies, table-top discussions, problem-solving exercises, role play exercises, and simulations on key leadership issues, department success, and contribution to the larger mission of the institution. On the day prior to the workshop, there is a pre-conference registration and an optional evening reception.
