Dean and/or Assistant Dean, Institute of Medical 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 (problems getting exams graded, challenges to grades, etc.) Deans are required to beta-test and approve all new or revised exams and/or new colleges that are added to their institutes, and coordinate with the Course Development Committee to get final approvals. Once approved, the Dean is responsible for submitting the final versions to SFA Headquarters for integration into our live curriculum offerings. Deans must also work with their Directors to resolve any reported issues the Director may be having, or inform the proper office of the issue. Additionally, Deans receive the monthly status reports from the Directors within their institutes and use those to generate their monthly report for the institute. Assistant Deans assist the Dean with their duties, and need to be willing and able 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 STARFLEET Academy Orientation College Manuals.
