THE DIMENSIONS OF THE DEAN'S TASKS, PROCEEDINGS OF THE CONFERENCE FOR NEWLY APPOINTED JUNIOR COLLEGE DEANS (1ST, APPALACHIAN STATE COLLEGE, BOONE, NORTH CAROLINA, AUGUST 6-10, 1962).
Florida State Univ., Tallahassee.; Florida Univ., Gainesville.
THIS 1962 CONFERENCE COVERED FIVE OF A DEAN'S MANY FUNCTIONS--(1) IN COOPERATION WITH THE FACULTY, HE MUST DETERMINE APPROPRIATE COURSES, ESTABLISH THEM, DEVELOP AND EVALUATE THEM, AND CHANGE THEM WHEN NECESSARY. (2) IN HIS DECISION-MAKING, HE MUST BALANCE CONFORMITY AND ANARCHY AND NOTE THE MODERN EMPHASIS ON MAN'S RESPONSIBILITY FOR HIS OWN SOCIAL EVOLUTION. IN THIS ROLE, THE BEST ADMINISTRATOR RELEASES AND USES MOST FULLY THE POTENTIAL OF HIS STAFF. (3) THE DEAN MUST DEMONSTRATE HIS LEADERSHIP BEHAVIOR, AS OPPOSED TO HIS INNATE CAPACITY, TO THE PRESIDENT, THE DEPARTMENT HEADS, AND THE STUDENT LEADERS. HE MUST RUN A PRODUCTIVE AND EFFICIENT ORGANIZATION, WITHOUT NEGLECTING CONSIDERATION OF OTHERS. (4) IN ENCOURAGING FACULTY MEMBERS TO THEIR BEST PERFORMANCE, HE CAN (A) BUDGET FOR ALL POSSIBLE SALARY AND FRINGE BENEFITS, (B) REMOVE WORK THAT CAN BE DONE BY NON-CERTIFICATED STAFF, (C) PROVIDE ADEQUATE TIME FOR CLASS PREPARATION OR PRIVATE STUDY, AND (D) SHOW APPRECIATION, IN MANY WAYS, OF THEIR TRUE VALUE AS TEACHERS. (5) THE DEAN MUST USE HIS INFLUENCE IN DEVELOPING THE STUDENTS' SENSE OF RESPONSIBILITY BY DEFINING AND ENCOURAGING SELF-RELIANCE AND GIVING RECOGNITION TO THOSE WHO SHOW IT. STUDENT ACTIVITIES, COUNSELING SERVICES, AND THE INSTRUCTIONAL PROGRAM ALL CONTRIBUTE TO THIS DEVELOPMENT. (HH)
