2019 Associate Deans Conference and Section’s Annual Report 

2019 Associate Deans Conference:
Developing the Skill Sets of the Associate Dean
June 25-28, 2019
Renaissance Chicago Downtown Hotel

If you want to get something done in a law school, assign it to an associate dean! Associate deans are called upon to run the day-to-day functions of a school. As such, they must draw upon several different skills, most of which were not those for which they were hired as faculty members. In this conference, new and experienced associate deans will learn from seasoned leaders about how to improve their skill sets. Whether you are in academic affairs, faculty research and development, or student affairs, this conference will help you to become better in your role. Recognizing that none of us work in a vacuum, there will also be opportunities to examine ways that different associate deans at a school can work together.

Registration is opening soon, please watch for more information here.
