AMSPDC Division Directors Academy

The program is designed to provide Division Directors access to resources, information, networking, and tools to lead and manage all aspects of division activities. Our faculty of chairs represent a diverse set of programs in terms of size, structure, location, and more. Attendees will come away from this program with the tools and knowledge to work more collaboratively and successfully with their department chairs, other division directors, and faculty so they can lead a division that enhances the overall success of the department.
