Department Chairs' Workshop & Luncheon
Department chairs are invited each year by the Departmental Services Program to a luncheon at the Annual Meeting where participants discuss current issues facing departments.
The subject of the 2022 Chairs' Workshop & Luncheon in Montréal, Québec, Canada is “How to climb to the next level in academic administration (and is this right for you?)”
Panelists will share what they have learned from their experiences with academic administration above the department chair level, answering questions such as: What are the career challenges and accomplishments of such jobs? What are the best ways for a department chair to prepare for such roles? And, When is the right time to apply to take the next step?
Register for the 2022 Department Chairs' Luncheon here.

External Review Program for Department Assessment
An external review is a means by which a department assesses its current state and effectiveness, and develops goals and strategies to guide its future. This provides a unique opportunity for a department to consider the experience, expertise, and perspective of the academy at large through the engagement of outside participants who comprise the external review team.
As a resource for APSA departmental members seeking external review, the Departmental Services Program maintains a list of faculty who have volunteered to serve as reviewers. To request names of potential reviewers, please contact [email protected]. If you would like to volunteer as a reviewer, please submit your information here.
eJobs & Career Fair
APSA eJobs is the most comprehensive database of jobs related to political science and is accessible to all members. At the 2021 APSA Annual Meeting, departments are invited to reserve a table at the Career Fair for an opportunity to informally connect with interested candidates. The Career Fair is an opportunity for departments, institutions, and organizations to connect with APSA members for informational and informal discussions about jobs in political science, and other careers that draw on political science training, both on campus and in applied/non-academic settings.
