Problems keep things lively
A day in the life of a dean
by Scott Griffin
Trying to meet with a dean at
Texas A&M can be like going to
the family doctor. There are at
least three or four people wait
ing in line most of the day, busi
ness associates wander in and
out and a secretary keeps assur
ing you that you are next in line.
Bryan Cole, associate dean of
student affairs in the College of
Education, says the flow of stu
dents is normal in his job.
Cole says he loves his work,
which consists of conferring
with many students, but it does
not end there. He serves on at
least 15 committees, teaches, in
teracts with department heads,

At first glance. Cole appears
to be an average businessman.
He wears a three-piece suit,
works in a large office and has
three secretaries and graduate
assistants who help him.
But average is not the word to
describe this man.
Cole grew up in Marlin and
while in high school received a
congressional appointment to

Cole, who originally intended
to make the service his career,
served four years in Germany
and one in Vietnam. After Viet
nam, he returned to Texas and
received his doctorate degree
from Texas A&M in 1975. Cole
then became assistant to the
dean and has steadily worked his
way up to his current position.
His office is staffed with three
secretaries, who are as agile as
street policemen when it comes
to directing student traffic.
When students go to see him,
Cole seems friendly, yet firm
and to the point. His office is
spacious and comfortable as a
living room, with four soft chairs
to accommodate visitors and a
giant window that overlooks the

Cole deals with students in
the same fashion — no problem
He also is a master of manag

West Point taught him. Between
the faculty, students and paper
work, Cole finds time to play
racquetball, participate in the
Army reserves, and, most im
portant to him, be with his wife

Cole’s career at Texas A&M
has been colorful, including a
quick rise to his position as an
associate dean while garnering a
few awards along the way.
In 1980, he received the Dis
tinguished Service Award from
the MSC Council and Directo
rate for his work with various
student programs, and in 1979,
he received a Faculty Disting

Cole attributes the growth of
the college to the increase in jobs
for teachers. He says the job out

Texas because the recent influx
of people from the north.
As far as his own career is
concerned, Cole is happy here.
“I love my work here,” he
says. “I’ve had several opportu

I’ve stayed here because I enjoy
having control over programs
that mean something.”
