The Dean of Students Office is the main resource that helps connect students who are dealing with personal problems with campus resources, as well as the place to report incidents like hate and bias, sexual assault, and hazing.

The Dean of Students Office is the main resource that helps connect students who are dealing with personal problems with campus resources. The office also consults faculty and staff, parents, families, and friends, working together to serve students.
Our main focus areas are to inform, consult, and refer you to the right place.
Anytime you'd like to chat, we'd be glad to talk about any concern you have, without judgement.
