Interactive Workshop (105 minute solution-based workshop)

Abstract

Transitioning into the chairperson’s role is a challenge under the best of circumstances, and this can be complicated by the presence of a previous chair. Similarly, it can be difficult for outgoing chairs to return to faculty status. This interactive workshop considers ways to facilitate smooth transitions when the old regime won’t move out of the way.
