The Dean is the individual with the responsibilities involving students and faculty at a particular school. These can include academic or even duties that relate to student life. There can be different levels of dean that pertain to different areas or different college majors in the school.
When the Professor is rescued, he picks up internship at a school on the East Coast of the United States, but it is unrevealed if he is a fresh hire or if he is fulfilling an old contract. His Dean, however, seems eager to exploit his celebrity as a former castaway for donations and charities for the college. This distraction from his research leaves the Professor unappreciated until Gilligan and the Skipper visit. Their visit even seems to antagonize the Dean after Gilligan nearly knocks him over with a skateboard.
- The Dean is played by actor Martin Rudy.
