Portland Community College | Portland, Oregon

Faculty Department Chairs provide leadership to faculty and staff in their subject areas. They help administer and coordinate activities assigned by their Division Dean. (Division Deans are listed by campus under Instruction in the Organizational Guide.)

Faculty Department Chairs can also help resolve problems between students and faculty within their department. You can find out which campus a faculty member reports to by looking them up in the staff directory.
