Dean of Students

The Dean of Students Office advocates for students, both individually and collectively, by ensuring that programs and services reflecting best practices are in place to support their success.  The Dean of Students works collaboratively with the Counseling Center, Health Services, Residence Life and the Assistant Dean of Students to ensure that students are able to succeed in and out of the classroom.

The student advocacy efforts of the Dean of Students Office include the following:

  • #JasperFoodShare – Food Insecurity Support

    COVID-19 Resources

    Campus Ministry and Social Action has developed and continues to update a list of local resources for students.

    Community Emergency Resources - COVID-19

    The United States Government Accountability Office reviewed 31 studies and found that most studies indicate over 30% of college students are experiencing Food Insecurity. Many of these students have to choose between buying food or paying for their education. (source)
