If you would like to share concern about a student (or request support for yourself), please submit a Care Referral.

The Dean of Students office is committed to providing essential education, programs and services to support students' academic, personal and professional development. Our staff works with faculty, staff, and students across campus, as well as with parents, town leaders and community members to reach this goal.

We support students through a combination of individual initiatives, innovative outreach programs, co-curricular opportunities and policy development and oversight. The list to the left is a sampling of student support services offered through Dean of Students office. We strive to respond to all student inquiries through personal attention and advocacy.  

Our primary direct student support efforts focus on assisting students in successfully transitioning through a variety of challenging circumstances and situations that can impact their lives, both inside and outside the classroom, such as personal or family illness, loss, financial stress, academic access, living issues, interpersonal violence response, alcohol or similar substance related issues, and other forces that may interfere with their well-being and success and/or academic retention.

The Dean of Students office assists students with personal matters, while Academic Deans assist students with academic matters pertaining to his/her respective school or College.

As well as our direct services to students, Dean of Students office partners in many ways with other campus and community agencies to provide access and support to relevant resources that may also support a student's personal and/or academic success.  A sampling of those departments, agencies and resources are noted below.
