Bwog’s been thinking a lot about deans lately. Walking around campus and looking at signs on doors and titles on emails, we realized that you can’t throw a rock on this campus without hitting a dean. So we sent Senior Staff Writer and Community fanatic Alexander Pines to find out exactly how many deans we have at this fine university.
According to the university directory, using
rigorous investigative methods the “title search” function, we have approximately 253 deans. This number includes every school within the university, including Barnard and the grad schools. The “approximately” is because the search turned up several people whose title is “assistant to Dean” that needed to be subtracted from the total and I don’t count well when I’m tired. It would appear that the Columbia’s policy regarding titles is put a Dean on it. Below is a list of actual titles for administrators from the Directory, with a few thrown in from the Bwog email chain. See if you can spot the fakes and post your own in the comments.
