The Council of Chairs (CoC) was created as a forum for department heads/chairs/directors to provide feedback to the provost, share best practices and information, learn more about university priorities, policies, and procedures, and to network. The CoC includes all academic department chairs/heads/directors who supervise faculty and have budget authority/responsibility.
The CoC is guided by a steering committee comprised of a department head/chair/director from each college. The CoC steering committee is interested in hearing from you about topics and formats for future meetings. The list of steering committee members is below; please feel free to contact any of the members with suggestions for future agenda items, thoughts on professional development, or any other issues or concerns you may have related to your role as a department chair/head/director.
