Fostering Inclusive Excellence: Strategies and Tools for Department Chairs and Deans

“Fostering Inclusive Excellence: Strategies and Tools for Department Chairs and Deans,” is a seminar developed specifically for UC Department Chairs and Deans, to foster informed conversation about the best way to build and nurture a productive academic climate. Hosted on the Santa Cruz campus on December 3, 2014, the seminar combined research and data with a theatre scenario on the merit review process.

The seminar is sponsored by UC President Napolitano as part of the Presidential Initiative in support of the President’s Postdoctoral Fellowship Program (PPFP), which enhances UC’s efforts to serve a diverse state and nation by building diverse post-doc and faculty communities.
