A Values-Based Approach to Leading Through Shared Governance: A Discussion for Department Chairs

Last updated December 5, 2023

Explore how your personal, core values influence the way you lead within shared governance.

Overview

Your personal core values guide the decisions you make, the way you communicate, and how you lead and inspire others. Given this, it’s wise to examine how your values may support or hinder shared governance, so that you understand how your leadership can inspire faculty and staff to engage in the process. 

Join us for a one-hour discussion where we will explore how your values influence the way you lead within shared governance. Although the conversation will be responsive to the questions asked by the attendees, we anticipate discussing some of the following themes: 

In what ways do you demonstrate your values within shared governance? 

When and how do your values help or hinder your leadership within shared governance? 

Come prepared to engage in dialogue, ask questions, and share insights that can help you and other department chairs confidently navigate shared governance.

Who should attend?

This discussion is specifically designed for any/all department chairs or program directors who are looking to facilitate an effective, collaborative, and inclusive shared governance process. Deans who are interested in supporting their department chairs in this work will also benefit from this discussion series.
