I loved being able to network with other deans. I learned so much, and was happy to see that I share similar problems with my peers.Ben Magidson, Dean of Students

Workshop participant 2012
This workshop is specifically for Upper School Deans of Students. Middle School Deans of Students should register for Middle School Deans, July 17–20 in Stowe, VT.
The roles you fill as Dean of Students are essential, rewarding, and difficult—because you're both an advocate and disciplinarian to students. When you do your job well, you have a tremendous impact on their enthusiasm, attitude, and success.
In this course, designed for new and less-experienced Upper School Deans of Students, you learn how to create an atmosphere that attracts students to your school–and keeps them.
You cover these topics—and more:
Philosophy of Deanship
Disciplinary Procedures and Due Process–Legal Counsel
Healthy and Unhealthy Systems
Issues of Adolescents
