Role-Alike Session for Sitting and Aspiring Deans

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Today’s colleges and schools of education are facing increasing demands and challenges. Reduced state funding, increasing emphasis on enrollment management, and political pressures related to the quality and relevance of education preparation programs are influencing the priorities and responsibilities in our colleges and schools. While navigating these challenges, we must also simultaneously attend to the development of leadership capacity within our colleges, enhancing the quality, relevance and sustainability of our academic portfolios, develop and nurture mutually beneficial partnerships across the campus and externally, manage accountability and accreditation requirements, deal with student and personnel issues, raise funds through development work, support faculty in their pursuit of external funding opportunities, promote positive public relations and engage in pro-active marketing, and many of us must operate our colleges using new budget models and dwindling resources. Phew! This session is an opportunity for us to learn from each other, commiserate, identify issues of common interest, and continue an ongoing dialogue about how leadership in higher education should and could be engaging with the political, economic, and market influences we are facing. This session is open to all sitting deans, assistant and associate deans, and those aspiring to become deans.
