Helping all students


The Mission of the Office of the Dean of Students

The Dean of Students Office serves a central role in supporting student learning and development by fostering academic and social networks through which students develop as intentional learners and global citizens. Specifically, our purpose is:

  • to fill the gaps of service to students.
  • help students navigate institutional processes.
  • to positively influence the student’s university experience.
  • guide the institution on policies, laws, and regulations that affect students.

In fulfilling our purpose we:

  • advocate for students.
  • challenge and support students, faculty and staff.
  • cultivate learning and development opportunities.
  • create a space for students to be heard, valued and validated.
  • work to solve problems.
  • serve as the first stop for students when they do not know where to turn.
  • work to ensure a safe and inclusive community for our students.
  • protect the integrity of the university community.
