New! The third edition of the handbook written for and by academic deans. Since the publication of the second edition, higher education has changed significantly and as a result, so has the role of the dean. This new edition addresses the work of a dean, from building a relationship with the president to deciding when to leave an institution. Many of the changes to the Handbook are based on input and surveys from ACAD members about what issues are most important to them.

ACAD is excited to hold our 71st Annual Meeting January 21-24, 2015 in Washington, DC. The theme of the meeting is Liberal Education, Global Flourishing and the Equity Imperative: The Deans’ Perspective, and it will be held in conjunction with the Association of American Colleges and Universities (AAC&U) Centennial Annual Meeting. The ACAD conference will complement the AAC&U conference theme of “Liberal Education, Global Flourishing, and the Equity Imperative” by providing a track of sessions focused on the academic administrator’s role as campus leaders implementing practices for globally engaged liberal education and providing opportunity-expanding education to the communities they serve. In short, what is the Dean’s perspective?
Registration for the meeting will open in mid-September and is run through AAC&U. Click here for the AAC&U webpage that includes information about registration fees, hotel and the program.
