The Academic Chairpersons Conference is an annual forum where academic chairpersons, administrators, and faculty from all areas of higher education share the most successful, innovative ideas and strategies to assist each other in becoming more effective in their positions. The perspectives shared emphasize the practical aspects of chairing. IDEA cosponsors this conference with Kansas State University.

The New Chair Alliance connects and supports new chairs at a similar stage in leadership growth through a pre-conference workshop followed by the two day chairperson’s conference. The workshop is designed to provide a learning environment in which new chairs learn best practices and participate in collaborative exchange.
