Dean of Students

The Dean of Students Office has overall responsibility for many services to students at the University such as:

  • Residence Life
  • Pacific Information Center
  • Housing
  • Student Handbook
  • Counseling and Health Services
  • Campus Public Safety
  • Student Activities
  • Judicial Process
  • Multi-Cultural Services
  • Parents' Programs
  • Learning Support Services
  • University Center
  • New Student Orientation

The Dean of Students Office staff works closely with the Professional Program Council and the Undergraduate Community Council in presenting, discussing and resolving student concerns. Individual students, as well as student groups are encouraged to use this resource as an outlet for expressing a wide variety of issues and concerns. Ensuring that student's questions get answered and that their opinions get communicated throughout the University are of major concern to those at the Dean of Students Office, and they welcome student viewpoints on programs, policies and facilities at the University.
