Dean of Students


In working to support students, faculty, staff, parents, and families Dean of Students staff work collaboratively with various campus offices to ensure students are connected to the necessary resources. When appropriate we help others establish relationships with staff to utilize these services within the University community or Cedar Falls area.

Some of the departments we most frequently work with include:

Financial Aid - Connecting students with Financial Aid counselors who provide comprehensive information and services regarding opportunities to finance the cost of education and who are dedicated to making the financial aid process as straightforward as possible.

Counseling- Referring students to the Counseling Center where they benefit from services and resources, as well as innovative programs including Walking Mediation on the Labyrinth, which provides an opportunity for students to reduce their stress.

Housing & Dining- Helping students build relationships with UHD staff and encourage students’ engagement through intentionally designed environments, programs, and services.

Office of the Registrar - Providing information on official transcripts, transfer credit, enrollment verifications, commencement, and other services through the Record Analysts/System Specialists.

Student Accessibility Services- Collaborating with SAS to empower students who wish to request academic accommodations.

Student Health- Supporting students by connecting them to health services staff who can assist in the management of conditions and other student-related health issues.

Student Wellness Services - Serving students as individuals and groups through free Wellness Coaching and other programs to support the health, well-being and success of students.
