Department chairs are the "front line" of academic management yet most of them receive little or no training for their positions. Designed for both new and old chairs, this one-day seminar-workshop will help them learn best practices and strategies from a seasoned US-based multi-awarded department chairperson and educator who has creatively energized departments towards achieving the highest student satisfaction ratings and accreditation in America.

The department chairperson plays a key role in stewarding your school's day-to-day operations balancing the demands of your students, professors and deans. This unique program will equip them with the right administrative skills to be effective in their job. We will feature successful and techniques that chairs use, as well as ideal models of administration.

This best practices program is never really taught in any Philippine school. Take advantage of this rare opportunity as we fly in the expert for you and your school's benefit!
