Managing Underperforming Faculty

September 26-28, 2016

Mismanaging underperforming faculty could impact departmental morale, production, and reputation.
Prepare yourself as an academic chair by getting an in-depth view of how to support and manage faculty who do not meet performance expectations. During this event, you will learn how to:

  • Develop and use performance metrics for your faculty evaluation
  • Set clear performance expectations for your faculty
  • Differentiate between types of performance problems and their causes
  • Determine the best strategy for mitigating faculty performance issues

After participating in this conference, you will be able to determine the problems your faculty face, implement interventions to mitigate issues, and avoid management pitfalls. 100% of attendees have told us that they will personally use the information from this conference in their future work.

"Managing Underperforming Faculty identified issues, gave real-world scenarios, and described workable solutions. Great job!"
- Andrew Vines, Department Chair, San Jacinto College
