Your Dean of Students is your advocate and resource to help maximize your success at KSU and beyond. The formal roles of the Office of the Dean of Students include oversight for all student conduct, problem resolution, behavioral and crisis response, administrative emergency withdrawals, policy review and compliance, and student advocacy and support.

In addition to the formal functions of this office, the Dean of Students collaborates across all areas and constituents within the greater university community to enhance the student experience. This includes not only service to students but also collaborations with parents, alumni, community members, faculty, staff, and campus administrators. In some ways the Dean of Students office is similar to a hotel concierge - when you are not sure where to turn and need guidance, we will always be happy to help. If we cannot resolve your needs we will connect you with the appropriate offices and individuals who can.

Thank you for choosing to be a part of the KSU family, and we look forward to your lifelong engagement in our community!
