The Office of the Dean of Students includes various offices that work to enrich the student experience. These offices are overseen by the Dean of Students, Jamele Adams.

The staff maintains a varied program of social, cultural and intellectual events during the academic year. Our staff works to build a community based upon mutual understanding and consideration. The work of student affairs reflects the commitment to our core values: citizenship, integrity, respect, civility, lifelong learning and embracing diversity.
