ACAD Workshop 2: Succeeding in the Search Process

Saturday January 24, 2015 12:00pm to 3:00pm

This half-day workshop is intended for anyone at any stage of the process of searching for a dean’s position—from those who are just beginning to consider it seriously to those who have been candidates.  The workshop begins with the preliminary but important questions of whether you are a good fit for a dean’s position, whether you have the necessary experience to be competitive, and how you would recognize positions for which you would be a good fit.  It then moves to working with search consultants and dealing with those on your home campus who may come to know of your application or may serve as references. You will then be offered guidance for preparing strong application materials and doing well in the interview phase of the search.  The workshop will conclude with a discussion of handling relationships with the institution you have applied to and finally negotiating and sealing the deal.   Participants will be expected to prepare a confidential self-assessment in advance of the workshop which will also be useful in the application process
