This issue presents a variety of perspectives on how the chief academic officer (CAO) can not only survive but excel under the crushing number of tasks they need to perform. The journal is divided into several distinct units: establishing the CAO or dean's role in the community college context, examining the day-to-day issues that arise in the management of academic affairs, discussing aspects of budgetary and data management, and looking at issues of professional development for deans.
