New Deans' Academy


New Deans’ Academy provides collaborative training and networking opportunities to help new managers and invited supervisors succeed in their new roles. Workshops are conducted by administrators from across Los Rios.

The program features morning sessions on just-in-time topics aligned with campus responsibilities. Almost every workshop involves hands-on activities, and we encourage mentor communication between workshops. Topics include:

  • Faculty and classified evaluations
  • Scheduling and enrollment management
  • Legal issues
  • Union leadership
  • Budgets
  • Transitioning to a new leadership role
