At no time in the history of American higher education has it been more important for decision makers in colleges and universities to understand the dynamics of strategic planning ...


The Deanship: A Dimension Of Academic Leadership, Frank Cortez Flores Mar 1991

A prime assumption of this brief study is, arguably, as the chief administrative officer in an academic program, the dean is essential ...
