Residence hall deans have occupied a prominent position in Seventh-day Adventist educational philosophy since the pioneer administrators of Battle Creek College first provided on-campus housing for both men and women in 1887. First called preceptors and later called deans, these important men and women are an integral part of campus life.

Called to a Ministry of Caring is practical, easy to read, and addresses real issues experienced by residence hall deans on secondary and college-level campuses including:

  • Components of a residence hall program
  • Roles and responsibilities of deans
  • Important attributes and needed skills
  • Developmental needs of students
  • Administrators' expectations of deans
  • Parents' expectations of deans
  • How deans can balance work and family
  • How deans can deal with stress
  • How deans are evaluated
  • Suggestions for making the "task force" deaning program work more efficiently

This book is a celebration of the profession and the author's forty years of service as a residence hall dean. Prospective deans, beginning and experienced deans, administrators, teachers, and parents will benefit from this one-of-a-kind book.

Paperback. 410 pages. Copyright 2001, 2005. Updated in 2013.
