Department Executive Officers Seminar - Introduction

Department Executive Officers Seminar - Introduction

Each year approximately 65 department executive officers from Big Ten Academic Alliance universities come together for a unique leadership development seminar. Topics range from conflict resolution and mentoring to faculty development, performance reviews, and group problem-solving.

The DEO Seminar traditionally meets in person at the Big Ten Conference Center for three days in length in the fall. The 2021 program will be a virtual program that consists of a welcome session, three half-day synchronous online interactive modules, and three online synchronous group problem-solving sessions.

Participants are selected by their respective campuses. Contact the appropriate DEO Liaison for more information about participating in the DEO Seminar.
