This paper analyzes the behavioral dysfunction known colloquially as “dean’s disease” in terms of the classic group of mortal sins to which we are all susceptible and the particular problems faced when serving in an administrative capacity in academia. Practical remedies for those afflictions are suggested based upon the available literature, more specifically Bediean (2002) and Spritzer (2004) as well as the author’s own experiences.
