Start with us. We’re here to help.

Navigating all of the moving parts that make up a whole university can be overwhelming – even intimidating – for students. The Office of the Dean of Students advocates for and with students to provide access across a wide spectrum of areas.

We work closely with university services and community agencies to clear a pathway to success in areas such as university policies and procedures, academic performance, and personal crises.
