Deans Knowledge Base (DKB)

The Deans Knowledge Base (DKB) is a searchable database of resource documents of interest to A&S deans. Included in the database are summaries of ListServ discussions, presentations from conferences and seminars, presidential addresses, white papers, and so forth.  DKB documents are available only to members of CCAS by logging in under Members Only with your personal ID.  
The database is organized into categories, and can be searched within categories or by using keywords. Click here for a table of keywords.  Searching works best if you enter a single word rather than a phrase.
