Handbook for Department Chairs

The following resources and essays collected from the PKAL archives provide anecdotes, advice, and useful tools for department/program leaders.

The PKAL Handbook for Department/Program Chairs is a work-in-progress. This handbook serves as the primary resource for the PKAL F21 Summer Leadership Institutes at BACA (June 17-22, 2006). Advice, additional stories, checklists, and useful tools are welcome, as are comments on the characteristics of the ideal department chair. Send any of the above to pkal@pkal.org. Special thanks to the participants in the Summer Leadership Institutes.
