Discussion[edit]

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment I think chairperson (P488) should be used for this as that is the same meaning, it is just the label that is different - so add a qualifier to specify the title is "dean". Otherwise we will end up with separate special properties for every label used by the head of an organization. ArthurPSmith (talk) 18:14, 22 January 2020 (UTC)
@ArthurPSmith Should we also eliminate the existing rector (P1075) and use chairperson (P488) instead? --Dataverse (talk) 09:59, 23 January 2020 (UTC)
Maybe, I'm not familiar with the term "rector" myself. It's an old property anyway, and we have a few older ones like that that really aren't so useful now we've learned more how to structure data here. ArthurPSmith (talk) 18:16, 23 January 2020 (UTC)
