Student Life Office

Meet the Student Life Deans

The deans in Student Life meet regularly one-on-one with students for academic support, assistance in addressing obstacles to student success, guidance on campus policies and procedures, and collaboration on student and campus life initiatives.  

While deans share many similar responsibilities, each dean has a focus or specialty area related to their specific department. Please reference the summary below to learn more about our deans in Student Life and how to set up an appointment.

If you are unsure who to meet with, please contact the Student Life Office and include your name, preferred times to meet, and a brief description of what you would like to discuss with a dean.

Britt meets regularly with students experiencing personal crises and unanticipated life events that disrupt a student’s ability to focus on their academics and well-being. Britt works with students to create a comprehensive plan for addressing hardships and connect to appropriate support resources. Britt chairs the Care Team and Behavioral Intervention Team, and is available to faculty, staff, peers, and family members to consult about concerns for students.

Students facing challenges that interfere with academic success might benefit from meeting with Julie. Expect a collaborative discussion about relevant resources, strategies, and administrative options so that you can develop a plan for getting back on track and/or making adjustments to your current educational trajectory. For example, Julie meets with students on academic probation, students who are considering a leave of absence, or those re-entering the college after time away.
