Getting launched as an academic leader

Department chairs and other academic leaders are expected to know how the campus works! But who tells them?

California Hall

It can be hard to figure out who to go to for what on the large and complex Berkeley campus.

In this section of the Academic Leader's Toolkit, you will find information about how the campus is organized, how decisions are made, and how to get in touch with leadership. 

You will also find information about the key strategic initiatives that knit together the work of these divisions under the leadership of the Chancellor and Provost.  

There are guides to terminology, deadlines, and other basic navigational information.

You can also access professional development resources to help new chairs and deans learn the skills their roles demand.
