capitalization of a title


I believe that the following is the incorrect " The Dean's administrative executive puts ..." 'Dean' should be lower case - correct?

Depends...  "Dean Lass" is a title, like "President Obama."

however, "The Dean's..." as you've used it is somewhat general.

I'm going to go out on a limb and say capitalized is acceptable, and lowercase is also acceptable.
