Dean of Student Affairs
Student Affairs is charged with supporting and participating in the academic mission of the College. As educators we seek to maintain and enhance a purposeful, open disciplined, caring, and diverse community. As such we value integrity, dedication, commitment, honesty, social and civic responsibility, while promoting our students' intellectual, emotional, physical, and spiritual development. We are committed to optimizing student development through excellence in services, programs and facilities.
As specialist in the field of student development, we serve as student advocates both inside and outside the classroom. We consult and collaborate with faculty, staff, administrators and campus external governing agencies. Through collaborative research and evaluation we study our environment, programs and services and are accountable to our students, the College, our state and our profession for providing a quality educational experience for all students.
