    This program will explore one of the key tools an associate dean can employ to make a lasting difference for a school, its students, and its faculty–alliances. By identifying potential allies and cultivating and sustaining strong purpose-driven relationships, an associate dean can aspire to leave a lasting legacy. Whether those alliances are with the leaders of faculty committees, with student service professionals at the law school, with leadership at other law schools, or with other academic leaders on a campus, alliances can prove essential in supporting an associate dean’s efforts to make progress on an institutional level. Panelists will discuss examples from their own experience where they successfully (or unsuccessfully) formed or maintained alliances and provide suggestions on how other associate deans can leverage alliances to achieve their goals.
    Business meeting at program conclusion.
