Dean of Students

The Dean of Students Office serves in an advocacy role for all students. We assist students, parents, faculty and staff with all matters related to student life for academic success at CWRU. Additionally, we provide support for students experiencing a range of challenges from the day they first become a part of our CWRU community. We help students holistically navigate their academic journey.

The Dean of Students Office also provides online resources for faculty and staff and oversees Disability Resources, the Office of Accommodated Testing and Services, the Interreligious Council, and the Student Emergency Fund.
