How can individual departments gain expertise in leading change locally? The American Physical Society (APS) Effective Practices for Physics Programs (EP3) initiative aims to help physics programs respond to challenges with a collection of knowledge, experience, and proven good practice derived from the physics community and disseminated via the EP3 Guide. As part of this initiative, we are piloting Departmental Action Leadership Institutes (DALIs), which provide intensive support for departments in implementing changes to their undergraduate programs. In this February 24, 2022 presentation, we will describe the goals and structure of the pilot DALI, present some initial feedback from our participants, and provide opportunities for the audience to reflect on how this model might be useful at their institutions.
