Meet the Deans

Taft is a community of more than 700 students, faculty, and staff. Managing the day-to-day business of the school is like running a small corporation, and our deans keep us running like clockwork. Our Academic Deans build a schedule that accommodates the needs of almost 600 students taking more than 200 different classes. They work with both students and faculty to ensure both individual and institutional success. The Dean of Students’ Office takes care of things like rooming assignments, travel permissions and transportation, our conduct system, and the social calendar. Questions? Usually it is the Deans’ Office that has the answer.
