Congratulations on your new associate or assistant dean position! Are you asking yourself “Now what?” Do you have more questions than answers? Join a cohort of new associate deans in three live lessons of sharing, networking, and learning how to be successful in your role. Build your network in interactive, workshop-style lessons focused on your transition to a high-level administrative role. Create a personal vision and action plan and learn to navigate common administrative challenges through group interactions, breakout sessions, and spaced learning in a virtual environment. Through group discussions, take an in-depth look into the role and responsibilities of the associate dean. Facilitators and panelists with extensive administrative leadership experience will provide unique insights into the challenges new associate deans face as well as the resources and methods to handle them. Learn how to motivate people, prioritize and delegate tasks, navigate politics, and deal with adversity while maintaining your and your school’s integrity and achieving balance between the needs of the dean, students, faculty, and yourself.
