The role of the Dean of Students (as CSAO) at a small college is multi-faceted, requiring a wide range of knowledge, skills, and abilities. Research and literature on the role of the Dean of Students provides an understanding of the history of the position and how it has changed since its inception over a century ago. However, in the 21st century this research becomes sparser and lacks focus on details of the role, contemporary challenges, and the required competencies to be a successful professional. The present study explored professional competency and the role of the Dean of Students at small colleges. The results of the study add to the literature by offering a better understanding of how Deans of Students at small colleges report their own levels of professional competency and how they seek to increase and expand their competency through specific activities. Data for the study was obtained from participants via an electronically distributed survey. The electronic survey was used to collect responses including demographic participant information, ACPA & NASPA Professional Competencies Rubrics measures, competency expansion opportunities, and responses to two short open-ended questions. The intent of this study was to explore Dean of Students’ self-reported levels of competency as measured by the ACPA & NASPA Professional Competencies Rubrics (ACPA & NASPA, 2016) (Appendix A). In addition, participants indicated methods for increasing and expanding competency.
