The European Association for Architectural Education (EAAE) and The Mackintosh School of Architecture would like to invite leaders of Schools of Architecture to the EAAE Deans’ Summit II, on 21 April to 22 April 2022. The EAAE Deans’ Summit is organised for the second time, and is an annual event of the EAAE, providing an opportunity to meet and discuss issues concerning the current state of architectural education and research, as well as contemporary conditions of the profession.
The EAAE Deans’ Summit II will take place online.


Academic leadership in times of dynamic flux and flow 

We operate in times of dynamic shifts in thinking, context and pragmatics. It might be said that this has always been the case, and as architects we take this on board as part of our working practice.

However, it feels that we have reached a tipping point, ( or is it déjà vu?), a time to take stock and consider what is it as Deans we offer as academic leaders to our schools, student and staff and colleagues. With dynamic shifts within our profession, in funding regimes, global priorities and social changes, we are often required to be simultaneously  seasoned campaigners, innovators, disrupters, diplomats and negotiators, imagineers, dreamers and realisers.

 How then can we support ourselves and each other? How can we learn from each other?  What are the specific challenges of being a leader now?
