Participants will learn:
  • expected and intended role of the dean as a function of the institution and environment.
  • specific ways to articulate an effective agenda that engages the most important stakeholders early, navigate the (sometimes)-competing agendas, and remain focused on the most critical tasks.
  • how to balance the demands of a deanship with one’s personal life and priorities.
This session will start by dispelling some commonly held myths about strategy and strategic planning. It will challenge participants to think about these two elements in a way that creates excitement around the school’s strategic intent by all stakeholders.
Explore the strategic and tactical aspects of managing external relationships with various stakeholders. Topics for discussion include identifying stakeholders and their interests and developing synergistic and sustainable alliances within industry and academia.
Learn how to establish successful donor relations, fund- and friend-raising approaches, effectively cultivating and managing an advisory council and board development with meaningful engagement with its members.

Customized degree programs and delivery systems are the norm for students, faculty, and administrators today.

We will discuss ways to answer these questions as well as potential new revenue streams based on your mission, strategic priorities, unique qualities and/or local needs, and resource(s)
This session will use the information discussed in the seminar to develop a preliminary roadmap for your role as Dean and create a comprehensive “takeaway” that participants can refer to as a decision framework.

A panel of experienced deans will share the insights and best practices they learned during their deanship.
