Administrative History

The office of the Dean of the Faculty was established in 1962, with Marion Tait becoming the first Dean of the Faculty. This office not only assisted the President directly with matters pertaining to educational policies, curriculum, dealing with office and classroom assignments, and the budget for educational equipment, but also dealt with educational policy issues in the absence of the President. While the position of the Dean of the Faculty was replaced by that of the Dean of the College in 1981, it was reestablished in 1991 and "continues to serve as 'chief academic officer', providing 'intellectual leadership... for all academic departments' and working jointly with the President to develop educational policies."* The assistant to the Dean of the Faculty currently handles event planning.
