Summary

This review of the literature on the department chair position in institutions of higher education examines critical issues related to the chair position. It concludes that research has provided a clear picture of who is involved in the chair position but has not clarified ways to improve the effectiveness of the position. The review is organized into two sections. The first, on the historical development of the chair position, focuses on the time period during which the chair position was first formalized (1880s to 1925) and the impact played by business, industry, and politics on the formation of the administrative position. The second, on contemporary research on the chair position, examines the various roles and responsibilities, needed skills, and challenges and coping strategies facing the chairperson. Lack of chairperson training is identified as a critical issue. (Contains 19 references.) (DB)
