Summary

An attempt was made to apply to the academic deanship finding by D. Thomas and J. Gabarro that executives of color who succeed in business possess three personal resources: confidence, competence, and credibility. Through the use of relational regression techniques, researchers examined deans perceptions of leadership success, competence, confidence, and credibility across four subpopulations of the sample of deans: white males, white females, minority males, and minority females. The National Study of Academic Deans was conducted to establish a baseline of information about academic deans in the United States. Responses were received from 800 deans from 360 public and private institutions. The resulting database included a wealth of information about deans, including their perceptions of the success, competence, confidence, and credibility. Findings suggest that the findings of Thomas and Gabarro may be applicable to higher education. People from the groups that have historically filled deanships see definite ties among these resources, but their minority counterparts were less likely to se this picture. The paper contains suggestions about what minority deans can do to increase confidence, competence, and credibility through approaches such as mentoring, coursework, and job choice, and what universities can do to increase confidence, competence, and credibility in minority deans. (Contains 6 tables and 35 references.) (SLD)
