Managing Threats to Your Department: Building a Thriving Physics Program
In these uncertain times, many departments find themselves under threat in a number of ways. The Effective Practices for Physics Programs (EP3) guide and Toolkit for Departments Under Threat are available to provide insights into strengthening your department and looking to strategies that make physics highly relevant in the moving target that is higher education. We will review guide and toolkit content that focuses on critical areas such as recruitment, retention, advising/mentoring, climate/culture, program review, strategic planning, implementing change, and tips for effective leadership. This workshop will provide tools for implementing change and strategies for focusing efforts that will allow departments to position themselves as innovators and leaders within the institution. Advanced sign-up is required for participation.
