New! The third edition of the handbook written for and by academic deans. Since the publication of the second edition, higher education has changed significantly and as a result, so has the role of the dean. This new edition addresses the work of a dean, from building a relationship with the president to deciding when to leave an institution. Many of the changes to the Handbook are based on input and surveys from ACAD members about what issues are most important to them.

ACAD is in the final stages of completing our program for our 72nd Annual Meeting. The theme of the meeting is Making Equity and Quality Work and it will be held in conjunction with the Association of American Colleges and Universities (AAC&U) Annual Meeting, on January 20-23, 2016, in Washington, D.C. The ACAD conference will complement the AAC&U conference theme of “How Higher Education Can Lead—For Equity, Inclusive Excellence, and Democratic Renewal” by providing a track of sessions focused on the role of academic administrators as campus leaders implementing equity-minded practices and ensuring quality liberal education to all students in the communities they serve. In short, how do we as academic leaders make equity and quality work, and in turn further define the role of education in a democratic society?
Registration will open in September and more information about the full meeting can be found on the AAC&U website.
If you have any questions about the Annual Meeting please contact the ACAD office at 202-884-7419 or via email at email@example.com.
