In December, we had our first Associate Dean Huddle with associate deans who work most closely with faculty (or who are the only associate dean in a unit whose work therefore includes faculty affairs). We are planning to meet every 60 to 90 days to discuss issues and initiatives relating to faculty.

We hope this will provide an opportunity for input on initiatives our office is working on as well as a chance for the associate deans to share ideas and resources, engage in collective problem solving, and create collegial relationships across units.
