About 
Dean & Provost

“I find Dean & Provost to be indispensable reading for tracking what's happening in today's rapidly changing world of colleges and universities. The special reports are always light-years ahead of other higher education publications in terms of keying into trends and patterns that are only just emerging. Dean & Provost is a radar screen and time machine all rolled up into one publication!”
