MSU Department Heads Roundtable
- Wednesday, December 16, 2015 from 11:30am to 1:00pm
- Strand Union Building - view map
We have been interested for many years in having a department heads’ discussion group at MSU that would meet from time to time to confer about shared concerns, opportunities, and institutional matters of mutual interest.
This is NOT a proposal for a governing body of some kind, nor is it intended to be a replacement for the Provost’s mandatory retreats for Deans, Directors, and Department Heads. There is nothing official about this at all, and this will NOT be a gripe session! Rather, we are interested in engaging our collective Big Brain: dedicated people sharing their well-earned wisdom. Specifically, the intent of the Roundtable is to provide a venue for collegial conversation that will help us to keep the degrees of separation as low as possible between our various disciplines and interests.
Potential future topics of discussion might include things like spousal/partner hires, proposed revisions to Gen Ed Core, campus diversity efforts, tenure-track vs. non-tenure-track hires, student retention and graduation rates, etc.
