2018 Department Leadership Workshop

George Washington University will host, in summer 2018, the AAG Department Leadership Workshop. Participants will also have an opportunity to meet, learn with, and share some meals with early career faculty attending the GFDA (Geography Faculty Development Alliance) Early Career Workshop being held during the same week.
The Department Leadership Workshop is for all geographers interested in improving their programs - chairs/heads, associate chairs/heads, deans, academic advisors, provosts and other administrators, as well as all faculty interested in leadership issues. The workshop is particularly well suited for individuals who may soon assume leadership positions.
The Department Leadership Workshop will begin on June 13, 2018 and end on June 16, 2018. Registration for the Leadership Workshop is $325/person, which covers supplies, meeting space, facilitator costs, and most meals. Accommodations are available on campus for $250 for three nights, but participants are free to find their own accommodations in D.C. All participants are responsible for arranging their own travel to and from Washington, D.C. with Reagan National Airport only a short taxi ride from the workshop venue. Questions about the AAG Leadership Workshop can be sent to workshop leader Ken Foote, University of Connecticut (ken.foote@uconn.edu).
