In this Essay, though, I write not about the joys and burdens of service or the personal reasons why one might decide to step aside as dean. Instead, I write about the institutional factors that deans should consider as they make their decisions, time their departures, and determine how to most effectively help their institutions after announcing the decision to resign as dean.
