The Dean of Students office supports the mission of the university by maintaining a campus environment which is conducive to the recruitment, retention, personal development, and success of students. Specifically, we advocate for student rights; promote student involvement in the university's decision-making process; provide a program for new students to help them adjust to college living and learning; and offer services and programs which respond to the needs of diverse constituencies. The office also ensures the university community functions as freely as possible from disruptive and inappropriate behavior.
