Academic Leaders Online (Previously Academic Leaders Lunch)

Promoting cross-campus communication, information sharing, and leadership development, this program invites academic leaders from across campus to gather and hear firsthand from University Leadership about relevant and timely information.  Topics vary monthly, and have ranged from How to RPT, Budget Updates, and Legislative Session Updates, to New Course Student Feedback Forms, and Addressing Faculty Behavior.

Academic leaders from across campus are invited to attend, including deans, associate/assistant deans, department chairs, and program/school directors.


*These meetings are generally held on the first Thursday of each month from 12:00pm - 1:15pm*
