Qualities of a Successful Educator? Here’s One Good Answer

Interview with Robert Stacey, new Dean of the College of Arts & Sciences at the University of Washington (my alma mater). Last question, he’s asked what are the essential traits of a successful dean. His answer, I think, describes not only deans but all successful educators—especially teachers:

  • believe passionately in the importance of your institution
  • have a good sense of humor
  • really like students
