This is the time in a dean’s life when you should be considering your “next” career move. To plan ahead you must consider where you are in your career, what your future aspirations are, and where you want to finish the last years of your professional life. These decisions may encompass geographical changes as well as changes in academic or nonacademic positions in your future. How you plan ahead your next move, although not always in your control, will depend on what you want to do next. You may want to be a provost or president of an academic institution; to move away from the academy to a business, industry, accrediting agency, national organization, consulting work, or government job; go back to the faculty; or retire.

Mr. Latour sought union support but despite good past performance reviews, because of the clear documentation of expectations and current poor performance, the union did not support a grievance. After leaving the institution, Mr. Latour filed a suit against the university for discrimination. The court did not find merit in the allegations and dismissed all actions. • • • OTHER STAFF MEMBERS In your college, you may not be responsible for hiring or firing technicians and secretaries in the academic departments; however, you may have an oversight role in increasing, reducing, or reallocating such resources.

Given that none of the other faculty in the department were willing to assume this responsibility, the dean asked the associate dean to act as interim chairperson. Before talking to the department, the dean discussed the plan with the provost and requested support to move forward, which was given. The dean met with the department, acknowledging that none of the faculty desired the chairperson’s role. The dean presented the institutional duties and responsibilities of chairpersons and indicated that the current chairperson had found them onerous and was unable to fulfill them.
