College of Arts & Sciences Annual Chairs Retreat 2017

The annual CAS Chairs Retreat was held on August 25, 2017, at the Alumni House. Dean Edelgard Wulfert met first with the five new Department Chairs to discuss the responsibility and authority that comes with leading an academic unit. The new Chairs also were oriented to the various resources and support provided by the Dean’s Office and received tips from a panel of seasoned Department Chairs. Returning Chairs joined the group later in the morning. During the afternoon, the participants discussed case scenarios of common challenges facing Chairs. Toward the end of the retreat, the Chairs were greeted by UAlbany’s new President, Dr. Havidán Rodríguez.
