Letter from the Dean

Welcome to LIFE University! 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 support you. We are committed to a vision of diversity and inclusion that fosters the academic and personal growth of all students. We are here to help you create a vibrant community that enhances the quality of your student experience. 

These efforts include helping students make sensible and informed decisions about academic and personal matters, negotiating the opportunities and challenges that are an important part of a highly demanding academic environment, and finding appropriate resources within and beyond the Division of Student Affairs. We also work with a range of collaborative partners, including academic departments and programs, to create opportunities for students, faculty, staff, and community members to integrate the learning that takes place inside and outside of the classroom.

In Student Affairs we are focused on the education our students receive outside the classroom. Though we are mindful that the intellectual life will be the core of the enterprise at LIFE, we are dedicated to the idea that learning continues, is enhanced, and is made meaningful beyond the threshold of the conventional classroom.

The Dean of Students Office can help you work through many questions and concerns. Students often land in the Dean of Students Office when they are not clear about where to turn for help. 

Please feel free to contact us if we can be of service. Our number one priority is to make the student experience at LIFE University a powerful and enriching one.

Welcome New Eagles!
