Dean of Students
Meet the DOS Staff
Come visit us in our offices on the first floor of Heggblade Center.
The Dean of Students at Claremont McKenna College is responsible for the day-to-day lives of all CMC students. This includes supervision of the Dean of Students staff and its functions: Academic Counseling, Personal Advising, First-Year Student Programs, Residential Life & Housing, Student Activities, the Center for Civic Engagement, and Disciplinary Matters. The Dean of Students is also CMC’s liaison to the “central services” that are provided by the Claremont University Consortium, including: Campus Safety, Monsour Counseling and Psychological Services (MCAPS), Student Health Services, Health Education Outreach, the Office of Black Student Affairs, the Chicano/Latino Student Affairs Office, the Queer Resource Center, the EmPOWER Center, and the Chaplains Office. The Dean of Students serves as an advocate for student concerns and needs. And finally, the Dean of Students serves as the primary dean for juniors, seniors, and graduate students at CMC.
Dean Weyman is responsible for first- and second-year students and programs, including orientation for freshmen and transfers. She is passionate about helping students in transition, especially the transition into college, and her goal is to help everyone find their place at CMC. She also manages the First Year Guide program. She encourages freshmen and sophomores to come meet with her for any reason – big or small – and always enjoys meeting new people. Originally from St. Louis, Kristin went to Middlebury College, where she majored in Italian and minored in art history. She spent her junior year abroad in Italy and hopes everyone will find time to study abroad. She has a master's degree in higher education administration from Northwestern University, and loves Chicago. She and her dog Bailey can often be seen walking around campus (usually pretty early!), and they both love it when students say hello. In her free time, Kristin enjoys Cardinals baseball, hiking, and taking advantage of the sunny California weather. She often takes trips down to Encinitas to visit her nephew, whose picture you will see all over her office.
Dean Vos is responsible for residential life, including housing assignments and the Resident Assistant program. He also assists with student conduct issues. He aims to provide a positive and dynamic residential experience for all CMC students. A native of Claremont, he trekked east to attend Middlebury College, majoring in international studies and minoring in elementary education. He's been slowly making his way back west, having attended graduate school at Northwestern University and subsequently working at Grinnell College. He is half-French and is always looking for opportunities to converse. He enjoys discovering new music, exploring new places, cooking new dishes, and following (old) sports such as college basketball and international soccer.
Dean MacIver is responsible for Student Activities, WOA, and also serves as advisor to ASCMC. He is always open to hear ideas for new and innovative events and is excited to help students create a dynamic programming calendar for CMC. Originally from Massachusetts, Dean MacIver has a B.A. in political science from UMass Dartmouth, and a master’s degree in college student development from Northeastern University. In his free time, Dean MacIver enjoys gardening, cooking, and playing video games.
Through the Center for Civic Engagement, Dean Bibbens strives to foster personal and character development in CMC students through co-curricular programming in the areas of service, citizenship and sustainability. The CCE serves as a resource center for students interested in community service, and encourages active participation in public life and community problem solving. She received her bachelor’s degree in communication from the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, and a master’s degree from Cornell University. A native of North Carolina, she is a Tarheel basketball fan. She and her husband (who also works at CMC) stay busy with their two kids and a dog, and can often be found cheering from the sidelines of soccer fields and basketball courts.
As part of the Student Activities team, Kari serves as an advisor and resource to all CMC clubs and organizations. She serves as the primary advisor to the College Programming Board (CPB) and helps to oversee the Bike Shop. She also works with the CMC Orientation program, which includes the beloved WOA trips for incoming students. Originally she is from Arizona, but ventured to Texas to receive her bachelor's in business administration in financial consulting from Southern Methodist University. She earned her master’s degree in higher education and student affairs from Baylor University. Having been raised in baseball parks she is always interested in attending any game within driving distance, even though her beloved Diamondbacks are a state away. She also has a deep love for movies, chocolate, and traveling to new places.
Sean Rollolazo co-supervises the Resident Assistant program and housing operations as the second member of the Residential Life team. As a West Coast-er, Sean grew up in both Seattle, Washington and Kailua Kona, Hawaii, and earned his bachelor’s degree in Marketing at Azusa Pacific University — just 15 minutes away. He earned master’s degree in higher education and student affairs at Baylor University in Waco, Texas, before heading to Elon University in North Carolina as a professional in residence life. Sean loves anything food-related (cooking, baking, and eating) and music-related (listening, singing, and dancing). He is a runner (not necessarily a fast one) who is either training for a race or planning to sign up for the next one. He also loves being around people, particularly college students, who encourage him to be authentic, passionate, and teachable.
Julia Easley is a member of the Office of Student Affairs along with Jeff Huang, with whom she works very closely. She is responsible for a number of administrative tasks in the Admission Office as well as in the Dean of Students Office. She also is the Disability Coordinator for CMC. She is a native of California, although she spent most of her childhood in Houston and most of her adult life in Minnesota. Given the weather in those two locations, is it any wonder that she now lives in Claremont? She attended the University of Texas at Austin, majoring in Plan II, and was a legal secretary for almost two decades before re-entering academia, first working at a law school and now at CMC. She spent a year abroad in Sweden and enjoys going to the Swedish table at Oldenborg (on Pomona’s campus) on a weekly basis. She has three children, two of whom are in college and keep her on her toes. She doesn’t cook, although she has been known to bake a couple times a year. In her free time, she does a lot of genealogy research, reads chick lit and mysteries, and loves to veg in front of the TV.
Ms. Keller assists the Dean of Students and oversees the Dean of Students Office. She serves as the primary contact on behalf of the Dean and provides support in the daily operations of each department within the office. Cynthia manages the DOS motor pool, supervises the DOS Student Assistants and makes arrangements for Commencement. She earned her bachelor’s degree in integrative studies from Arizona State University. Stop by to see her anytime and you will always be greeted with a warm smile and a positive attitude, provided she has had her morning coffee and has a full candy bowl.
Ms. Hughes provides assistance in the areas of Residential Life and Orientation, including room changes, meal plans, health insurance, and dorm damage. A native Californian, she is a graduate of Cal State Fullerton with a B.A. in communication. She hopes you will drop by Heggblade if you have any questions regarding residential life. Even if you don’t have a question, stop by and visit ‘Wilson,’ the automatic red candy dispenser, which will cheerfully provide a handful of M&M’s, Skittles or jelly beans.
Shayla provides assistance in the areas of Student Activities, Campus Recreation and Civic Engagement. She also manages the DOS vehicles and the DOS student assistants. A native of Melbourne, Australia, she received her bachelor’s degree in physical education from Coe College and a master’s degree from Emporia State University.
