From staff reports
Ohio University will provide faculty the opportunity to learn about university administration in order to develop future faculty leaders and academic administrators beginning in the fall.
In the 2010-11 academic year, the Office of the Executive Vice President and Provost and the College of Arts and Sciences are jointly sponsoring a brown bag seminar that will provide eight to 12 faculty members an introduction to academic administration issues.
Participants will receive a copy of the book, "The College Administrator's Survival Guide" (www.hup.harvard.edu/catalog/GUNCOL.html), by C. K. Gunsalus (2006). In addition, monthly discussion topics will be selected based on the participants' interests, but focused primarily on various aspects of academic administration (e.g., budgeting, handling personnel issues, strategic planning, etc.).
Some weeks may involve brief presentations or questions and answer sessions with selected administrators around campus. The group will meet from noon to 1 p.m. on the third Wednesday of September, October, November, January, February, March, April and May.
If you are interested in participating, please e-mail Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences Ben Ogles at firstname.lastname@example.org by June 25 with a statement of your interest and a brief C.V. Participants will be selected based on availability and their ability to bring to the workshop perspectives from different disciplines and colleges.
