Session 133

Transitioning from Faculty to Administrator: Building Strategic Human Capital

Track L

Date: Sunday, October 7, 2012


Time: 08:00 – 09:15

Interest Group Panel

Room: Club D

Session Chair:

  • Aya Chacar, Florida International University


Administrators are essential to the success of academics and academic fields. Among other things, these administrators run journals, departments and colleges and they are often the same individuals that conduct top rate research in the field. Despite the importance of this aspect of the academic job, faculty get little formal training in administration and this field has a dramatic dearth of administrators prompting universities to hire non academics to these jobs with mixed success. This panel will ask a distinguished line-up of current and past administrators for their thoughts on how to build the human capital to succeed in administrative jobs and what to do about research during those times. Together, the individuals on the panel have in the past or are currently serving in most of the roles that faculty may have to serve in one day and will share their experiences, knowledge and wisdom with us.
