Department Heads Council
The Department Heads Council is a self-organized group focused on developing a better collective future for Virginia Tech's academic departments and their leaders.
Akin to "group office hours" for leaders, this is an unstructured time for drop-in conversations and networking among academic leaders. It's a regular opportunity to share successes, challenges, ideas, and encourage each other in ongoing leadership development. Held on the 3rd Tuesday of every month, from 1:00-3:00pm.
