There are a variety of events organized each year for new and veteran department chairs (and those that serve in a similar unit role), including all-chair leadership breakfasts, new chair leadership training lunches, and chair coffee conversations.
Each August, the Office of the Provost hosts a New Faculty Orientation for new faculty to equip them with the resources they need to succeed in their first semester at Baylor.
