Resources on Leadership

Below are a selection of topics related to administrative leadership with accompanying resources that complement the content in the New Heads Seminars and other leadership programs such as the Academic Leadership Institute.

These resources include selected links to Building Strong Geosciences Departments, the best single set of online resources for developing a strong department and part of the broader On the Cutting Edge website, an NSF-funded collection of materials on teaching, research, and career management. Most of these resources are broadly applicable to varied disciplines.
