Summary

This paper addresses the evolution of the kinds of challenges that deans have met over time and examines perceptions of today's deans concerning their ability to deal effectively with current challenges. A sample of deans (n=695) in the colleges of education, business, liberal arts, and nursing at 360 public and private institutions was surveyed and asked to identify and rank order the three biggest challenges they expected to face in the next three to five years, and to rate how effectively they thought they would address each challenge. Seven general categories of anticipated challenges were identified: fiscal, administration, curriculum and program development, faculty, technology, personal balance, and diversity. The three rated most important were: (1) fiscal; (2) administration; and (3) curriculum and program development. Significant differences were found across the challenges, but no significant differences were found among deans grouped by minority status, institute type, and institutional rating. Regarding administrative challenges, older deans (age 50) and those with less than two years experience tended to see themselves as more effective than those who had longer tenure.
