The Dean of Students Office serves as the “Central Hub” of campus for all student related issues. I serve as an advocate and liaison for students as well as assisting faculty, staff and parents when needed.
The Dean of Students Office strives to provide a safe and respectful educational environment that lends itself to learning. When you join the UHCL community, you become part of a family that promotes civility, respect and ethical behavior towards everyone and in every situation.  Through the interpretation and facilitation of the Student Code of Conduct, the Dean of Students Office holds all students to the high standards of honor, character, and excellence.
We offer the following support services to help you achieve your academic and co-curricular objectives:
We are committed to helping you become a well-rounded, and educated person while encouraging self-responsibility and self-advocacy.
