Welcome to the Office of the Dean of Students

The Office of the Dean of Students serves as a liaison between students, parents, faculty, university staff and administrators to: assist with individual or group crisis; navigate campus procedures; and serve as an advocate for students, when needed. The office is the primary contact for individuals who need assistance identifying the appropriate resources available to them. In an effort to meet the individual needs of our students, the Department for Disability Support Services, and the Office of Student Rights and Responsibilities join with the Dean of Students to provide comprehensive student services and thematic programming that emphasizes personal, emotional, and academic development. These departments work in partnership with the Office of the Dean of Students by responding proactively to crisis, safety, wellness, and access matters. Collectively, we are committed to helping every member of our community to succeed. The East Carolina University Dean of Students Office is the central campus resource for addressing student complaints and inquires.

Staff Members are available to discuss both general and specific questions, as well as any concerns about university life, transitional issues, policies, procedures and university services to include: support with academic, personal, or social issues and concerns; assisting with adjustment to university life; and support in the event of any personal, medical, or family emergency.
