Mission & Pillars

The Dean of Students office is a Student Affairs unit whose mission is to provide individualized support that empowers Carolina students to succeed in navigating their university experience.

Our four pillars—Care, Collaborate, Celebrate, and Empower—guide our approach and everyday work.

Care – Response and support provided to students after an unexpected situation, difficult event, or crisis incident.

Collaborate – Connecting students to resources and services across campus and throughout the community to help create a support network.

Celebrate – Outreach initiatives that recognize student successes and provide opportunities to promote DOS as a resource.

Empower – Providing support and sharing information that enables a student to navigate the University policies and processes and experience academic and personal success. 

We often serve as a beginning point of contact for students, faculty, staff, families, and community constituencies regarding various student concerns.  Whatever is happening in your life – personal or academic, know that we are here for you.
