Five participate in CIC’s Department Executive Officer seminar

Five faculty members are participating in the Committee on Institutional Cooperation’s Department Executive Officers seminar.

Participants for the 2013-2014 seminar are Rick Bevins, professor and chair of psychology; Bertrand Clarke, professor and department head for statistics; Frauke Hachtmann, associate professor and department head for advertising and public relations; Daniel Linzell, professor and chair of civil engineering; and Julia McQuillan, professor and chair of sociology.

The five were selected by the Office of the Senior Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs to participate in the CIC program.

The CIC started the annual program of leadership development opportunities for department heads and chairs in 1997. Each year, approximately 65 department heads and chairs from CIC universities participate in the seminar. Topics at the three-day event range from conflict resolution and time management to faculty development, performance reviews and group problem solving.

This year’s program is Nov. 14-16 in Chicago.
