Deaning: Middle Management in Academe.
Morris, Van Cleve
The inner structure of campus management is examined to reveal the human side of personnel management, public and student relations, budget planning, affirmative action, faculty politics, salary disputes, and tenure decisions. The analysis depicts the special situation that results from a dean's management of people who not only are the dean's academic peers--drawn from learned ranks of American society--but who also sit as the judges of their own managers. Chapters include: the study of academic management; the administrative temperament; the faculty and its politics; salary, promotion, and tenure; outreach: the university as urban service station; affirmative action: equity and what it means; money: how to get it, how to spend it; governance: running the store; and evaluating a dean. Appendices provide forms for student evaluation of professors, criteria for faculty evaluation, and criteria for evaluating a dean. (LC)
