The DSP Department Leaders Forum
The DSP Forum provides an opportunity for monthly conversations about the happenings in your department, with your career trajectory, within your administration, and with your students. The forum is a chance for networking in a safe environment for social support, information sharing, seed-plantings, and idea generation.
- Forum Format
The forum allows for you to learn and discuss matters that directly affect your department. Each forum will be scheduled to allow for both education and open discussion.
Format participants will assist in generating the agenda for the next forum. We will continue conversations on the DSP Community platform.
- Forum Calendar
In addition to having the opportunity to discuss the departmental impact of current events, the forum allows for department leaders to continue discussions generated at both the Department Leaders Summer Institute (June of alternating years) and the Annual Meeting’s Department Chairs Breakfast (November).

- Topic: COVID-19 Year One, What’s Next? (or COVID-19: What’s Next for Anthropology Departments)
Departments are completing their first full year of COVID-19 teaching and learning and the semester is winding down. With ongoing COVID-19 vaccinations, and changing institutional regulations and teaching format, what is your department’s plan going forward, how has your department navigated the changes and how has/will this affect your students and faculty?
