This Forum is a one day program held on campus before the fall semester. It is designed for chairs, deans, associate/assistant deans, and directors. New chairs are invited to an orientation for the first hour (beginning around 9:00 AM). Deans and directors attend with their 'cabinet teams' and convene at 10:00 AM. The agenda includes:

  • A discussion of legal issues relevant to working in a University and essential knowledge for administrators, faculty, staff, and students. An attorney from the UM General Counsel's office is present to support this discussion.
  • An update on UMSL initiatives, policies, and procedures important to know as the academic year begins.
  • Questions about policies and suggestions for topics are welcome and may be sent to Peggy_Cohen@umsl.edu
