10 x 10 Georgia: Building Vital Undergraduate STEM Departments & Programs

December 5 - 7, 2003


The 10th 2003 PKAL Assembly, to be held in Atlanta, Georgia in early December, will focus on the roles and responsibilities of faculty in or moving into positions of leadership at the departmental and programmatic level, and of administrators whose decisions affect the character of the undergraduate STEM learning environment. The aim of this assembly is to examine effective practices from campuses across the country in addressing challenges and opportunities facing those with formal leadership roles within an undergraduate community. During this Assembly, issues relating to sustaining and developing a first-rate faculty will be one thread woven through a set of discussions about the roles and responsibilities of departmental leaders (and leaders of programs) in undergraduate STEM.
