University of New Haven Dean of Students

The Dean of Students Office

The Dean of Students Office provides support and advocacy for students. We answer questions, provide information about and referrals to campus resources; assist in students’ adjustment to the university; promote programs which address student needs, concerns and interests; and help students in resolving problems of any type.

We challenge students to conduct themselves with integrity in both personal and academic matters and hold them accountable for their decisions and actions. Our goal is to foster a community of mutual respect where students are actively engaged members of the university community.
