DEO Leadership Development Program

Co-sponsored by the Office of the Provost and University Human Resources

The DEO Leadership Development Program is designed for departmental executive officers in their first two years of service as they transition to this key campus leadership role. The program is designed to be complementary to collegiate support for DEOs, as well as existing UI programs (e.g., CIC-DEO and CIC-Academic Leadership Program). Competency-based content will be delivered via small cohorts and tailored to individual needs and goals, and will include topics such as:

  • Making the transition from faculty to DEO,
  • Understanding and drawing upon your leadership style,
  • Leading and managing departmental faculty and staff,
  • Unit goal formation and attainment, and
  • Positioning your unit within the institution and with external constituencies.
