Dean Thomas Shanks was the Dean of Kenneth P. Higgins Institute in the 2016 movie.


Thomas Shanks took over as Dean when the previous dean went to jail. Thomas was unaware of Abby and Jillian's involvement in the institution until they asked for more money. Upon finding out they existed, he fired them both. He later chased Abby, Jillian, and Erin with a baseball bat as they took the Paranormal Studies Department's equipment from the institution. Abby admitted that none of the equipment actually belonged to her and Jillian.


  • Thomas Shanks is a nod to John Candy's character on SCTV, Mayor Tommy Shanks, the Mayor of Mellonville. [citation needed]
