In my role as Dean of Students, I’m an advocate for all students and do my best to ensure that policies and procedures are in place to guarantee your smooth navigation through out your academic career. I oversee many departments, programs and services that are in place to support you up to and through graduation. Please familiarize yourself with these departments and services; they are here to benefit you and help you succeed.

Please feel free to stop by my office in room 306 in the Student Union or call 330-972-6048 to schedule a meeting. My staff and I are here to assist and support you.
