Department Chairs Under Siege: Resolving the Web of Conflict.
Gmelch, Walter H.
New Directions for Higher Education, n92 p35-42 Win 1995
Three main themes in the conflict experienced by college department heads are examined: conflict inherent in the structure of higher education (institutional), conflict created when people work together (interpersonal), and that woven into the chair position (positional). These conflicts are not necessarily negative or positive; these administrators must simply prepare to respond appropriately to the situation. (MSE)
