The Dean of Students Office is the department within Student Affairs that oversees most aspects of a student's life outside of class, including Residential Life, New Student Programs (such as Orientation and WOA), Student Activities, Academic Success, the discipline process, and coordination of the College's response to crisis situations involving students. As student advocates, the Dean of Students team provides a variety of services and extracurricular programs, as well as being available for one-on-one support and assistance.
The CMC Office of Student Affairs employs a transformational framework in which students are supported and coached in developing the skills and attributes required of engaged and responsible global leaders. In a residential community model, students are encouraged to develop and participate in learning opportunities that facilitate their holistic growth and understanding of self and others. Students develop creative problem solving strategies through applied learning, and are prepared to navigate adversity with confidence and courage. Through intentional programming and personal interactions, students are guided to make meaning of their experiences in and out of the classroom. In so doing, they gain skills to excel in their personal and professional endeavors and to impact their communities at CMC and beyond. Click here to review the DOS Goals.
The Dean of Students staff is committed to building and maintaining a vibrant community which is inclusive and open to new and differing experiences and viewpoints. We work closely with all CMC constituencies to ensure that students have the opportunity and support needed to fully engage in the life of the College and make the most of their time at CMC. We hope that students will find the Dean of Students office a safe and welcoming place. Stop by and get to know us! Our office hours are Monday through Friday, 8am-Noon and 1-5pm.
