Chair’s Letter

The Chair’s Letter provides the unit head an opportunity to highlight the most important strengths of the unit and the major challenges it faces (where the unit is now) as well as the principal actions it proposes for building on those strengths and addressing those challenges (where the unit wants to go), as described in the unit’s Self-Study Report.  There is no prescribed format for the Chair’s Letter, although the letters have typically been two to four pages in length.  Recent examples can be found in the APR Documents: 2013-2020 webpage.  The Chair’s Letter is due at the same time as the Self-Study Report (currently December 1).
