IDEA, a non-profit organization established in 1975, set the standard for helping institutions improve learning. The Student Ratings of Instruction system, powered by Campus Labs technology, is a normed, research-based instrument focusing on student learning outcomes and provides feedback for development. Department Chair and Administrator systems are also available.


At Jossey-Bass Department Chair Leadership Institute, we know that being a department chair is absolutely pivotal in the success of students, faculty, and programs in higher education. We also know that chairs often do not get the support and development they need to succeed. That’s why the our goal is to listen closely to your concerns and respond with the most helpful and practical content in a variety of flexible, convenient formats.

The Academic Leadership Journal is an open access, online journal. It is a multidisciplinary, peer-reviewed professional learning community that allows readers and editors to add ratings, comments, editor notes, and discussions to published articles.
