The department chair : new roles, responsibilities, and challenges by Alan T Seagren( Book )

4 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 600 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This monograph explores the changing role of the academic department chair in the areas of leadership, influence, and faculty development. The paper uses research insights to explore the situation of an academic chair who is squeezed between the demands of upper administration and the expectations of faculty, staff, and students. Studies of the roles and responsibilities of chairs consistently show that the role is ambiguous, unclear in authority, and difficult to classify as faculty or administrator. The tradition of faculty ownership dictates that chair leadership must emphasize empowering activities. The most effective use of political influence and power understands the political forces and processes of the institution and maneuvers groups and coalitions to achieve the autonomy and control necessary to a strong department. Faculty evaluation provides a chair with a powerful opportunity for developing quality. In addition, the chair must recognize how institutional type, history, and culture, model of governance, and discipline can influence what is expected. In the coming years chairs will need a program of professional development on many fronts to acquire the skills to address the complex challenges they will face. (Contains over 200 references.) (JB)
The Academic chairperson's handbook by John W Creswell( Book )

6 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 552 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book champions the importance of chairing an academic department (or division) and focuses attention on the strategies "excellent" chairs use in building a positive work environment for faculty and releasing individual faculty potential. The framework is based on human, organizational, and career development; systems theory; and interpersonal communications. The "excellent" chairs are 200 individuals on 70 campuses who were nominated by chief academic officers and faculty development specialists. In part I, several difficulties chairs encounter in building a positive work environment for promoting faculty growth and professional development are introduced. A self-assessment inventory is presented, followed by three chapters outlining 15 chair strategies, organized around the themes of chairperson self-development, role as an academic leader, and interpersonal relations with faculty. Part ii applies the strategies, first as a series of processes for addressing specific faculty situations and second as a general guide for building a positive work environment. The strategies include: helping newly hired faculty become adjusted; improving the teaching performance of faculty; improving the scholarship of faculty; refocusing faculty efforts; and addressing personal issues. A synopsis of a national project on academic department chairpersons is offered in an appendix. (67 references.) (Jdd)
