Whether you’re a new dean dealing with unfamiliar issues, or an experienced dean looking for fresh ideas, The Dean’s Mentor is your guide to doing your job more effectively and gaining the respect of your unit as well as your provost.

You learn practical advice from veteran deans and provosts who already solved the problems you face, from crafting detailed budgets to ensuring the quality of programs. Plus, you get advice-filled articles to help you work with students; mediate conflicts among faculty, staff members and department chairs; and respond to increasing competition for the best students and faculty members.

  • Take a risk management approach to faculty conflict-of-interest issues
  • Train tomorrow’s leaders with a mid-career faculty mentoring system
  • Use interdisciplinary curriculum to give students an edge in the workforce
