The Dean's Office manages and supports the shared concerns of the Maxwell School, including technology, facility use, budgeting, public relations, career development, alumni relations, and fund raising. It provides leadership and liaison with the University
on new School-wide projects and other broadly significant endeavors — those requiring support, consultation, and external investment.
In addition, wherever appropriate, the Office of the Dean works with the departments and other units of the School to facilitate such shared concerns as hiring, staff management, tenure and promotion, and curriculum development and revision.
