Creating a Family Friendly Department: Chairs and Deans Toolkit
Department chairs and deans have a central responsibility in understanding the importance of a family friendly department, and in implementing policies, sharing resources, and reinforcing cultural practices to assist all faculty.

The Creating a Family Friendly Department: Chairs and Deans Toolkit provides essential practical information for department chairs and deans. As an online document, it can be read in its entirety or referenced for information on specific areas. All topics can be accessed directly by clicking on their title in the Table of Contents, and all web links are live.
