The Dean of Students Office serves as the campus "ombuds" or problem-solving resource. If you have a concern, question or complaint and you don't know where else to go, you can contact us and we'll answer your question or offer guidance to help you resolvethe issue.

Common concerns include navigating University offices and processes, finding appropriate resources, and submitting student employment grievances. We also work with students to resolve fee appeals and support individuals who need to withdraw for severe medical reasons. If you need someone to listen, help, or lend a hand, the Dean of Students Office is your first stop.
