Intentional Dean : A Guide to the Academic Deanship (Paperback) (John C. Alessio)
About this item
Based on faculty leadership and administrative experiences, The Intentional Dean explores the reasons to pursue a deanship and how to successfully attain a position as an academic dean. Additionally, this accessible guide provides understanding of key activities and responsibilities of the deanship, such as setting positive agendas, budgeting and budget reductions, merit pay determination, and effectively attending to disciplinary issues. Stressing bold action, support for curriculum diversity, and the importance of protecting due process, this book helps prospective and current deans take deliberate steps toward making a positive difference in the lives of students. Unique in the manner in which it defends both faculty rights and important administrative prerogatives, The Intentional Dean effectively demonstrates how deans can play a key role in bettering their college, the university, and the communities they serve.
