What Skills Does An EA Need To Support An Academic Dean?

To support Academic Deans, an Executive Assistant (EA) needs to have excellent organizational, communication, and interpersonal skills. They should be able to manage calendars, schedules, and appointments, and handle administrative tasks efficiently. As an Academic Dean works closely with faculty and students, the EA should be able to handle confidential information, communicate effectively, and maintain positive relationships with different stakeholders. A good understanding of academic policies, procedures, and systems would also be useful for an EA to support an Academic Dean.
