Welcome to the University of Alaska Anchorage. As the Dean of Students, it is my pleasure to assist you in your academic, personal and professional development.  The Office of the Dean of Students is staffed with experienced and talented individuals who are ready to assist you. We are committed to a vision of diversity and inclusion that fosters the academic and personal growth of our students in the UAA community.

These efforts include helping you make sensible and informed decisions about academic and personal matters, negotiate the opportunities and challenges that are an important part of a demanding academic environment, and find appropriate resources within and beyond the Division of Student Affairs. We also work with a range of collaborative partners including academic departments to create opportunities for students, faculty, staff, and community members to integrate the learning that takes place inside and outside of the classroom.

Students often land in 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.

Please feel free to contact us if we can be of service. Our priority is to make the student experience at UAA a powerful and enriching one.
