Heads & Chairs

Heads & chairs workshop.

Register now for the 2015 Heads & Chairs Workshop at Fall Meeting

Since 1997, this forum has discussed important issues common to geophysical science departments, including research funding, program assessment, modernization of post-secondary curricula, increasing faculty diversity, and student career planning. It also holds annual workshops immediately prior to the AGU Fall Meeting and offers webinars throughout the year. This group meets jointly on a biennial basis with the Heads and Chairs of Atmospheric Sciences departments.

See additional resources from NSF Advance Institutional Transformation Grant recipients and from SENCER.
