Facilitated by Julie Artis, associate professor of sociology at Depaul University, Chicago; sponsored by the National Center for Faculty Development and Diversity.

In this bootcamp, we will focus on various ways you can maintain a sense of balance and wellness during the transition to department chair.

In this four-week session, we will discuss various ways to engage the role of chair while continuing to do scholarship and take care of yourself; brainstorm how to build a strategic network; learn how to engage in "difficult conversations" that will inevitably be part of your job; and ultimately, create your own personal, realistic definition for a successful term as department chair.
