Cover letter: My name is Sudhir Kudesia, MD, BS and I have worked as an Academic Dean in diffe rent Oriental Medicine Colleges for over seven years. I was the Academic Dean o f Kansas College of Chinese Medicine located in Wichita, Kansas until May 30, 20 10. I was laid off due to inability of the College to pay my salary. In short duration of my work at this college I have got this college Federal fin ancial aid (Title IV) approval by myself, VA approval, New Mexico Board of Orien tal Medicine approval and I-17 petition approval. I am well aware of processes o f accreditation from accrediting agencies and State approvals. I got this colleg e re-approved from KS State Board of Regents (KSBR) twice. The Secretary of KSBR , Ms. Jacqueline Johnson wrote a nice note on my well-organized file. I submitte d annual and biannual reports to the accrediting agency. The President of this c ollege always has excellent recommendation for me. I am including several letter s of recommendations with my application including one from the current employer . I can oversee and do almost everything in academics in a college but I have work ed more often than not even beyond that. I have worked for both for-profit and f or non-profit colleges although more for-profit Colleges. I know accreditation p rocess and obtaining approvals from required authorities very well. I am well versed in the administrative, academic and accreditation requirements of a college. Under my academic leadership and direction, the colleges where I w orked have all obtained 5years accreditation from the accrediting agency (ACAOM for Oriental Medicine)) and site visitors have always had positive comments for my work and me. As an Academic Dean, I took great pleasure in playing an active role both for the college and its students. I am focused, detailed oriented and multi task person. In my current and previous academic roles, I held faculty meetings, provided CEU to all faculty members every year, helped develop curricula and tests and taugh t faculty how to prepare syllabi and course objectives. For the sake of the stud ents and administration I have myself completed Post Baccalaureate Science teach ing certification education. I gladly take extra time to help teachers teach mor e effectively. In an emergency, or sometimes as a role model, I am able to teach any biology and Western Medical course any day. This keeps me in touch with th e students and keeps my teaching skills sharp. Additionally, I take great intere st in recruiting students and addressing any points of concern. I attend recruit ing job fairs and promote the college I would say aggressively. I have experienc e in financial aid and almost in any aspect of College. I have been a PDSO for about four years in Colleges I worked. As a matter of fac t I got them approved for I-20. I am very focused and detailed oriented on my jo b that serves the College well. I understand the process from the very beginning . I know extensively well hiring, evaluations and release processes of Internati onal and domestic students and faculty members. In short, I have a multi-faceted and well-rounded understanding of colleges. I e ffectively utilize "Evidence Based Education" for efficient, productive and mean ingful outcomes and constantly progress through the process. I am computer literate and I can handle both Mac and IBM compatible computers. I also take workshops for teachers and students who want to learn about computers specially preparing Power point presentations and Excel programs. Although I am not a computer professional but I know fairly enough to run our college compute r media, different soft wares/computer programs and about copying machines. It i s not a burden for me but I get my work done on time and I drive pleasure in hel ping others.
I am a citizen of USA. I am able to come for an interview any day. I am very flexible for time. I gladly work evenings and weekends to complete the work, meet the dead lines or simply complete the work as perfect as required. I am used to or inherently finish the work ahead of time and do not wait until th e deadlines. Knowing almost all aspects of academic functions of colleges and knowing how to delegate and or get work done, I feel very confident in being an excellent Emplo yee if the opportunity is granted. Please feel free to contact me for any further information that you may need tow ards my application. I will appreciate if you kindly acknowledge my e-mail. Thank you for your time and consideration, have a great day. Signed SSK Sincerely, Sudhir Kudesia, MD 352-275-7064 cell.

CUEs that I give to teachers and the faculty meetings that I hold give me opportunity to sm ooth running of the college. Teachers teach as they were taught. Teachers are ex cellent source of information but do more often than not lack in methods and mea ns of imparting the information to the students since no professional colleges t each how to teach.
