A Note from a Deanling

I got a note this afternoon in my email from a deanling, thanking me for meeting with a student about an advising thing and taking care of it. (I'm not on contract during the summer, and he was following up after coming back from his vacation to see if we needed his help with the issue. I'd emailed back explaining the issue and what we'd done to address it.)

It's nice to remember that we really are on the same side.


  1. In all seriousness, a little appreciation goes a long way, doesn't it? (I need a sign around my neck, "Will Work For Pats On Head.") This sets off lots of potential diatribes for me about unappreciated service work (disproportionately done by women), but I have an assessment document I'm late on...

    A "deanling"--I like it! We use "deanlet" around here...or, in certain cases, "Mini-Me."
