The Dean of Students interfaces and networks with many organizations and people across the WWU campus and the Bellingham community, emphasizing the entirety of the student experience and the resources available to students, faculty and parents. The student experience includes life experiences as well as academic. Student engagement takes place both inside and outside the classroom, transcending to involvement in co-curricular activities, clubs, organizations, internships and campus employment. 

The Dean of Students seeks to understand and convey the student voice as well as the academic/administrative voice, and works to connect those to benefit the students, institution and community.
