Welcome to the University of Alaska Anchorage! As Dean of Students, it is my pleasure to assist you in your academic, personal, and professional development while a student at UAA. The Office of the Dean of Students is staffed with experienced and talented individuals who are ready to support your educational journey. We are committed to a vision of diversity and inclusion that fosters your academic and personal growth both inside and outside the classroom.

These efforts include helping you make informed decisions related to your education, assistance negotiating the many opportunities and challenges that exist in a demanding academic environment, and identifying appropriate resources here at UAA and in the community that can make a big difference to students that may need support. We also work with a range of collaborative partners including academic departments and other administrative units on campus to create opportunities for students to integrate learning.

Students often find their way to the Dean of Students Office when they are not clear about where to turn for support and we are here to help you work through the questions and concerns that inevitably arise during the transition to college. Our priority is to make your student experience powerful and enriching and we appreciate the opportunity to serve you. Thanks for choosing UAA.
