A department chair serves as both a faculty member and an academic administrator, providing leadership and management to the department and/or division. At UNT, our goal is to provide chairs with the resources and support that they need to be successful in their complex roles.
Through the Chair Academy, chairs explore contemporary issues and best practices through engagement and collaborative dialogue. The overarching goal of the academy is to offer a basic set of procedures to accelerate the development of UNT’s leadership team. The academy meets monthly throughout the calendar year and hosts a retreat each August.
