Welcome to the Dean of Students!

We serve as the compass for undergraduate and graduate students' lived experiences, guiding them toward finding their own sense of purpose and belonging. Our mission is to foster an accessible and meaningful educational environment for students by providing individualized student support, responding to impactful incidents, and cultivating the conditions for learning, development, and success in a residential community.
