Dean (education)
In academic administrations such as colleges or universities, a DEAN is the person with significant authority over a specific academic unit, or over a specific area of concern, or both. Deans are occasionally found in middle schools and high schools as well. The term comes from the Latin decanus , "a leader of ten," taken from the medieval monasteries (particularly those following the Cluniac Reforms ) which were often extremely large, with hundreds of monks (the size of a small college campus). The monks were organized into groups of ten for administrative purposes, along the lines of military platoons , headed by a senior monk, the decanus. The term was later used to denote the head of a community of priests, as the chapter of a cathedral , or a section of a diocese (a "deanery"). When the universities grew out of the cathedral and monastery schools, the title of dean was used for officials with various administrative duties
