Department Chair Intensive: How to balance teaching, research (and Life!)
while transitioning into an administrative role

Facilitator: Julie Artis, PhD

Is it your "turn" to become department chair?  Are you newly appointed to the role?  Just like entering your first tenure-track job becoming an administrator is a major career transition.  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.

Julie Artis, PhD, is Associate Professor of Sociology at Depaul University in Chicago. In addition to being an excellent classroom teacher and scholar of motherhood, family and law, Julie is happily married and mother of two children. Julie is also currently Chair of her department and an expert in balancing teaching, research and administrative roles and responsibilities.
