Student Affairs

Who We Are

Student Affairs educators are building a culture of student success by ENGAGING students in activities and EDUCATIONAL opportunities developed to SUPPORT and EMPOWER each student to reach her unique potential as an effective citizen and leader.

Located on the first floor of Founders Hall (aka Main Street), the Dean of Students Office (FO 119) serves as the central office for the entire division of Student Affairs. In addition to serving as a central information hub on campus, the staff in the Dean of Students Office support students, faculty, staff and the community by:

  • Communicating College policies and procedures, and ensuring a strong learning community in which civility is a minimum expectation and the student code of conduct is followed. Click here to review the most recent version of the Student Handbook.
  • Serving as allies for underrepresented students and catalyzing training and development to strengthen campus inclusion
  • Distributing information about college and Milwaukee resources
  • Providing problem solving advice and/or advocacy for students when appropriate
  • Assisting with student grievances, behavior or bias concerns, sexual assault, harassment, violence, and crisis situations
  • Coordinating New Student Orientation and Commencement Activities
