- Managing conflicts over hiring, tenure review and institutional policy;
- Developing an atmosphere that promotes student learning and success;
- Handling institutional governance processes;
- Exploring how departmental budgets are impacted by institutional policies; and
- Creating a culture that embraces diversity among faculty.
