College Deans: Leading from within

Based on the National Deans Survey, which included 800 deans from all U.S. 4-year academic institutions, this book describes the deanship in general and gives profiles of deans: who they are and where they work. Also discussed is the position of dean itself in terms of general academic leadership and what deans in this study believe are their primary roles and responsibilities, where role ambiguity and conflict come into play, and how they characterize stress and its relationship to job satisfaction.
