Webinar: "Department Leadership During a Crisis"

The events of 2020 and 2021 presented challenges for academic leaders at all levels. Department chairs face particular pressures as the key point of contact for faculty, staff, and students. How can and should department leaders respond during times of political, social, and/or public health crisis? In this APSA webinar Loleen Berdahl (Professor and Executive Director, University of Saskatchewan) will lead a roundtable discussion of this topic with four political science leaders from a range of institutions: Thad Kousser (Professor and Chair, University of California, San Diego), Smita Rahman (Associate Professor and Chair, DePauw University), Cammy Shay (Professor and Faculty Division Chair of Government, Houston Community College), and Robin Turner (Associate Professor and Chair, Butler University). Individuals interested in academic leadership, and particularly present, past and future political science department leaders, are encouraged to attend
