2023 Workshop for Department Chairs and Leaders
The American Mathematical Society hosts an annual workshop for department chairs and leaders. In this one-day session, the objective is to provide opportunities for participants to share ideas and experiences and to foster the development of a community of peers who can continue to provide one another support and ideas in the vital role of department chair.
- Who: Chairpersons from all types of departments and institutions, chairs-to-be, directors of undergraduate study, directors of graduate study, and non-titular leaders
- When: Tuesday, January 3, 2023 9:00 AM - 3:00 PM ET
- Where: Sheraton Boston, Boston, MA
- US $200 - AMS members
- US $300 - non-AMS members
- Participation includes a complimentary breakfast, lunch, and afternoon tea on Tuesday, January 3, and reserved seating for the JMM Grand Opening Reception on Wednesday, January 4 at 6:15pm. This provides more time for the workshop participants to network with other attendees and to make more valuable connections.
The 2023 workshop organizers are:
- Anne Fernando, Norfolk State University
- Tim Flood, Pittsburg State University
- Emille Davie Lawrence, University of San Francisco
- Charles Moore, Washington State University
- The Workshop provides an opportunity to share experiences about issues and trends that have an impact on math department chairs, math departments, and colleges and universities. Previous topics have included resources, handling stress (students, staff and faculty), curriculum, and instructional delivery.
- Faculty attending from primarily undergraduate institutions were encouraged to apply for an AMS Travel Grant to JMM 2023 for PUI Faculty. Applications were due October 28, 2022. No new applications are being accepted.
- The workshop is sponsored by the AMS Division of Meetings and Professional Services.
