Dean of Students Office

The Dean of Students Office advocates for students and their success throughout their academic career. Led by the principles of collaboration, communication, and coordination we provide services and opportunities that empower students in their personal and professional growth. We do this through a focus on integrity and guided by the University’s Catholic mission.

About the Office

The Dean of Students Office is available to students to answer questions, to provide learning opportunities, to respond to emergencies, and to be a referral source throughout the campus.  The staff are a resource to students, families, faculty, and colleagues across the University.

When working with students, the staff in the Dean of Students Office encourage them to engage in self-reflection to grow from experience and move forward in their personal and professional journey. Drawing upon the University’s many resources, the staff will work with each student’s individual situation to help them to be successful in achieving their goals.
