Dean of Students

Welcome to the website for the Dean of Students. The most common question I receive is – “what do you do here?” My team and I are here to provide support and advocacy for all of our students, in collaboration with faculty and staff across the university. This is a large campus with lots of moving pieces, we’re here to help you navigate your experience here. I can make you two promises – 1. There’s no one on this campus that knows the answer to every question you will have during your time here. 2. When you don’t know where to go with a question, start with the Dean of Students team – I promise we will help you identify the department/person who has the answers to your questions.

I invite all of you to reach out to the Dean of Students team to help you navigate the various processes, policies, and procedures so that all of you have the best and most successful experience at CSULB. We here to support and encourage your holistic growth and well-being. We’re also here to celebrate all your accomplishments and milestones along the way!

Go Beach!
