The Dean as Advocate for Change.
McCoy, John J.
New Directions for Higher Education, n98 p109-113 Sum 1997
Engineering education will be profoundly affected by changes in the U.S. corporate culture, career aspirations of entering college students, research funding sources, and the globalization of engineering design. The engineering school's dean must interpret these strong social pressures for change in curriculum content and operations and serve as an advocate for change within the institution. (MSE)
