  • coordinates, facilitates, and expedites matters pertaining to the operation of the department/program,
  • ensures departmental/program policy decisions are carried out,
  • and demonstrates initiative and leadership in the conduct of department/program business.

Resources & Links

Each faculty and department will have processes or approaches to work that vary, given their unique areas of focus.  There are, however, certain processes that serve a collective purpose and to be able to achieve the desired outcome, clarity around what needs to happen and by whom is essential.

This page offers at-a-glance links and resources in support of the Department Chair/Coordinator. If you require more in-depth support, however, these cannot replace the value of:

  • conversation with your Dean/Director and colleagues
  • referencing the BUFA collective agreement and relevant policies
