Reflections on Serving as Chair
By: Michael Giesselmann, Texas Tech University

I had the honor & privilege to serve as chair of the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department in the Edward E. Whitacre College of Engineering (WCOE) at Texas Tech University for over a decade from Sep. 2010 until March 2021. I joined the Department in August 1986 as an Assistant Professor and served as Graduate advisor and Associate chair for graduate studies before becoming chair. I was fortunate that the department chairs that served before me, including the chair that hired me in August 1986 were all excellent mentors that prepared me for a leadership role in Academia. I can say the same for the deans that nurtured me as a tenure-track faculty member and later in various administrative roles. Without their collective mentorship, I would have been ill prepared for my role as Department Chair. I am confident that I imparted some of this wisdom to the current Departmental leadership team, a mentoring assignment I conscientiously pursued.
