The paper aims at identifying the role of department head in managing strategic reforms in the frame of the Bologna process. The study is based on the academic staff`s and the dean`s views and attitudes towards the role of the head in implementing changes and the effects of these modifications on instruction and learning. This research revealed that while university support and autonomy in decision making are crucial to implement reforms in the department, the head needs to address the main dimensions highlighted in Bologna documents within the scope of given authority. The dean and  the faculty similarly understood the role of HOD. Thus, they conceived it dealing with supervision and supporting research in the department. In factthe dean undertook these activities. However, the staff members were expected the HOD to emphasize on managing resources and put more effort on leadership role. The dean actively promoted adoption of the curricula and study programs in line with the Bologna declaration objectives. The Bologna process objectives implementation led to more focus on studentcentred learning and increase of students interests to subjects. The research findings suggested that in the framework of new reforms, HOD should putmore emphasize on leadership.Мaқaлaның мaқсaты Болон үрдісі aясындa жүзеге aсырылып отырғaн стрaтегиялықреформaлaрды бaсқaрудaғы фaкультет декaнының ролін aнықтaу болып тaбылaды.
