Individually Crafted Services to Meet Leaders’ Unique Needs

CFE provides a variety of consultation services for faculty leaders and their faculty units.  These services include:

Typically short (60-90 minute) presentations about topics such as time management, conflict resolution, career planning, strategic planning, mentor skill development, and negotiation. CFE also designs and helps identify outside resources for longer (e.g., multi-day) workshops and training programs.

Consulting and advising services

CFE leadership staff can serve as a sounding board for faculty leaders facing a difficult challenge, identify sources of information or external assistance, or produce a formal study or report about a particular issue. Consultations can touch on strategic planning, fundraising, succession planning, on-boarding new leaders, structuring a unit, managing conflict and difficult relationships, and other leadership challenges.

Faculty retreat and workshop facilitation

Facilitation by a neutral CFE leadership staff member enables leaders to participate in the meeting without worrying about its process, mechanics, or timeframe. Recent CFE-facilitated meetings have included beginning-of-the-year departmental retreats, program visioning, planning and strategy sessions, curriculum and course design sessions, conflict resolution sessions, program evaluation sessions, and career development retreats and workshops.
