The Office of the Dean of Students

Patty Davis and Malinda CarlsonThink of the Office of the Dean of Students as an open door or a welcoming sign for students. The staff understands that issues and questions arise that need answers. If they don’t have the answers, they will make sure that they find them for you. The questions may range from "Where do I go to get a tutor?" to "How do I get more involved in campus life?" All questions are encouraged.
