The dean of students provides overall guidance to the Office of Student Affairs. This individual acts as the university ombudsperson, advises students on how to approach conflicts, and coordinates the student disciplinary process. Additionally, the dean of students coordinates parent and family relations for Naropa, serves on the Student Journey Committee with the Board of Trustees, and co-coordinates responses to students of concern. The dean of students is an excellent first point of contact for students who are seeking grounding, navigating challenges, and setting goals.
The Office of the Dean of Students is located on the second floor of Wulsin Hall in The Learning Commons, an alliance of campus resources that actively collaborate to support a student's journey toward self-discovery, academic success, and engaged action in the world.
