Class Deans

The Class Deans work closely together to provide strong individualized advising to students, and we collaborate with faculty advisors and staff members from many other offices across the College to help make sure all of our students have the support they need to realize their goals.  Students are welcome to visit our offices on the second floor of the Schneider Center during drop-in times for quick questions, or they can schedule an appointment following the links below.

Summer Hours, through August 15: the Class Deans office is open daily during the summer.  Please email a dean directly if you want to meet before Labor Day.  If you can't reach your dean, feel free to email if you have a question, and one of the deans will reply. 

Appointment Calendars (Google calendars): during the school year, please sign up to meet with your dean using the calendars linked below.  When you follow the link, you will see that dean's open appointment times, superimposed on your own Google calendar.  Open the time you want to come by and click save to make the appointment.  If the available times don't work for your schedule please email your dean, and we will be happy to make other arrangements for you.
