Assistant Dean, Institute of The Arts


Office of Educational Services

Description of Role

Primary duties involve two areas: assisting students and administrative services. Deans must be able to handle issues that may arise between students and college Directors (such as problems getting exams graded, challenges to grades, etc.). Deans must beta-test and approve all new exams and/or colleges that are added to their institutes, and coordinate with the CDC to get final approval. Once approved, the Dean will work with all affected offices to get the new materials integrated into our live curriculum. Deans must also work with their Directors to resolve any reported issues, or inform the proper office of the issue. Another duty is to submit a monthly report for the institute, based on the reports from the college Directors, and their own information about what is happening in their institute. Assistant Deans will assist the Deans with their duties, and need to be willing to serve as Dean on a temporary basis if needed; therefore Assistant Deans should be able to perform all of the above duties if required. As we are enhancing our Moodle operations, Deans will be required to work with our Moodle team and the Directors in their institutes to find the best way to present their exams in the Moodle system and help resolve any issues relating to this. More information relating to the duties of Deans and Assistant Deans can be found in the SAOC Manuals.
