With the fall conference season about to kick into gear, Inside Higher Ed's Dean Dad, the man behind our Confessions of a Community College Dean blog, recently suggested a list of program sessions he'd like to see (but bets he won't). Among the pithier suggestions:
“The Least Harmful Ways to Cut Budgets.”
“Lessons from a Train Wreck: How Not to Implement a New CMS”
“You Say Sinecure, I Say Tomahto: Shared Governance and Conflicts of Interest.”
"If This is Such a Cushy Job, Why Can't We Fill It?: When Administrative Searches Fail.”
