Research Corp., New York, NY.
This document reviews the 1972 conference for new science department chairmen at public institutions held at Snowmass-at-Aspen, Colorado, June 1972. Highlights of the conference cover three major aspects: the chairman within the college structure; the chairman, his faculty and staff; and the chairman and his students. The first section emphasizes the relationship with the administration and the goals of the institution, coordination of the department with the nonacademic departments, and coordination of the department with other academic departments. The second section reviews program planning; creation of a distinctive department; hiring, promotion and tenure practices; and financing the department. The third section reviews the students' role in departmental affairs, recruitment of students, the chairman's role in the students' future, and the training of graduate teaching assistants. A 23-item bibliography is included. (MJM)
