Dean of Students

The Office of the Dean of Students is a department within the division of Student Life and serves as a key link between students and other areas of campus life.  The purpose is to support the out-of-classroom experiences of students in an effort to develop independent, civic-minded, and responsible adults.

The Dean of Students staff coordinates the College’s response to crisis situations that involve students and frequently serves as liaisons between students, faculty, and other administrators or offices in many different situations. 

The four offices that report to the Dean of Students focus on various elements of student life. 

Working to educate the entire college community, including faculty and staff, about relevant policies and ways of responding to student-related matters, the Dean of Students serves as an initial point of reference for students who have concerns about issues concerning their campus experience and for parents who are assisting their students resolve complex issues.
