The Dean of Students

The Dean of Students is responsible for overseeing the functions the departments listed below. Together, these departments are linked to promote and enhance student engagement and success.

The mission of Student Affairs is to foster the personal, social, vocational, emotional, cultural, physical, civic, and spiritual development of our students and to foster an appreciation of diversity in its many forms. We do this by encouraging programs, services and policies designed to assist the growth of competence, identity, self-esteem, responsibility, and personal values. Our goal is to produce a vibrant and active campus, which in turn attracts motivated and qualified students who contribute positively to the campus community.
