A member of the site administrative staff, the academic dean assumes primary responsibility for supervising the academic staff and coordinating the academic program. A CTY academic dean’s role is most similar to a dean of faculty’s as he or she supports and guides 20-75 instructional staff who come from a variety of educational backgrounds and have diverse teaching skills. Through classroom observations and frequent conferences with staff, the academic dean provides feedback and mentoring on teaching strategies and classroom management. The dean also addresses student performance issues and oversees the editing of student evaluations. Finally, he or she furnishes logistical support for field trips, class projects, and supplies, and at some sites supervises an academic dean's assistant.
At residential sites, the academic dean's work hours are primarily during class times and in the late afternoons and evenings of class days, including the evening study periods.
"Yours is the distinct pleasure of helping bright, energetic educators achieve their goals in the classroom. Through your team of teachers, you will exert a tremendous influence over the lives of each and every student attending your site." — former academic dean
