Dean of Students
The Dean of Students Office is part of Student Affairs. We strive to remain "student focused" and build programs with each and every student
as a priority. We provide opportunities for involvement and growth for students to
be successful and achieve their academic goals. The Dean of Students Office provides
critical incident response and resolution of complaints regarding student behavior
through mediation and/or the Student Conduct process.
The Dean of Students Office facilitates educational programs on alcohol and other drugs, diversity issues, safety, and topical issues. The Dean of Students Office works closely with Disability Support Services, the Multicultural Center, Native Students Services, Student Health and Counseling Center and Residence Life.
Students are responsible for knowing UAA policies, procedures, and deadlines which pertain to them. The UAA Student Handbook contains students' rights, freedoms, and responsibilities; complaint procedures; and campus safety information.
WELCOME FROM THE DEAN OF STUDENTS
Welcome to the University of Alaska Anchorage. As the Dean of Students, it is my pleasure to assist you in your academic, personal and professional development. The Office of the Dean of Students is staffed with experienced and talented individuals who are ready to assist you. We are committed to a vision of diversity and inclusion that fosters the academic and personal growth of our students in the UAA community.
These efforts include helping you make sensible and informed decisions about academic and personal matters, negotiate the opportunities and challenges that are an important part of a demanding academic environment, and find appropriate resources within and beyond the Division of Student Affairs. We also work with a range of collaborative partners including academic departments to create opportunities for students, faculty, staff, and community members to integrate the learning that takes place inside and outside of the classroom.
Students often land in the Dean of Students Office when they are not clear about where to turn for help and we are here to help you work through the questions and concerns that inevitably arise during the transition to college.
Please feel free to contact us if we can be of service. Our priority is to make the student experience at UAA a powerful and enriching one.
