  14. 14. The Many Roles of a Dean in CDE Contribute to External Advisory Committee Ex Officio member Without “overdoing it” provide high level compliments Listen to ideas People like to know you’re interested At the right time offer suggestions – topics, speakers, and sponsors For speakers that you know or want to know If schedule permits pick up at airport Maybe dinner the evening before Escort to where the program is scheduled After a thorough study, provide an introduction Stay or get back for lunch Follow-up thank you card and don’t forget CCS
  15. 15. The Many Roles of a Dean in CDE Be a content expert in programming it will keep you up-to-date on your discipline the professional community will appreciate knowing more about your interests you can “sneak in” info about your school Secure funds to support educational facilities conference room upgrades ITV simulation clinics Send program director information on other CDE programs promotional brochures course evaluation instruments websites addresses advertisements in journals survey data on “what’s hot”
  16. 16. What a Dean can do to help promote CDE Have your director of CDE be a direct report You can learn what did and didn’t work You’ll know what’s being considered for the future You can discuss new school priorities and how CDE can support them You can offer an update on “new talent” in the school Include information in school-base media internal newsletter marquees alumni magazine Web: www.dentistry.umn.edu Report at dental meetings ADA school-hosted reception State Districts Minnesota study groups
  17. 17. How a Dean can fully maximize the benefits of CDE Provide welcoming remarks at courses How many have taken one of our courses? Comment about something that recently happened Take advantage of the moment Encourage people to visit school’s website Recruit part-time faculty Remind them you need their support Invite them back for more courses Acknowledge CDE staff “Nice to be a member of a profession that is constantly wanting to improve its skills and abilities so that patients get the best care” If faculty from your school are presenting offer a personal comment If speaker is external to school recognize his/her commitment to profession Attend courses To maintain your own level of discipline knowledge To hear your faculty present To see what’s new in other fields At all-school meetings or in reports about your school recognize CDE staff and their accomplishments Note faculty contributions and the importance on their efforts
  18. 18. What a Dean should know about CDE It takes years to build a respected program Your staff work all sorts of crazy hours Don’t offer a course you’re not willing to support if it doesn’t draw Nothing good happens by chance or by accident Sometimes course participants “are not nice” A successful program depends on more than good content
