New Chairmen at the University of Utah.
Monson, Charles H., Jr.
ADE Bulletin of the Association of Departments of English, n21 p37-40 May 1969
Three years of training programs (1966-69) for new department chairmen at the University of Utah are described. Differing formats (with their relative advantages and disadvantages) for acquainting new chairmen with the scope of their jobs, their activities, and some appropriate administrative techniques are outlined. Such problems as peer leadership, recruiting, and budgets and finance receive attention. The advisability of including experienced chairmen, vice-presidents in charge of various areas, and the university president in the meetings is weighed. (AF)
