Welcome to the Dean of Students Office

We're committed to supporting students in all aspects of their lives, serving as a resource for student concerns and assisting students in their development as successful individuals and contributing members of the community.



We affirm and foster:

  • A welcoming community, where in the spirit of Augustine, mutual love and respect for all is powerfully affirmed.
  • A just community, a place where the sacredness of each person is honored, where favoritism, bigotry, racism and discrimination are categorically rejected.
  • A caring community, a place where the well-being of each member is sensitively supported, where service to others is strongly encouraged.
  • A responsible community, where students demonstrate a commitment to safe and healthy living and to ethical leadership and responsibility.

Additionally, we oversee administration of the University's Code of Student Conduct and serve as a liaison with various on and off-campus constituents including local townships, parents, the Department of Public Safety and the Office for Residence Life.
