Students Matter Most 

Here at the UofM, we put students first. If it matters to you, it means everything to us. The Dean of Students Office, within UofM Academic Affairs, plays a significant role in enhancing the learning experience for students. Many of our programs and services help students develop a connection to the UofM, supporting both their academic and personal success. Our departments include: Disability Resources for Students, Multicultural Affairs, Student Accountability, Student Leadership & Involvement and Veterans & Military Student Services. The Dean of Students also serves as a liaison to Religious Life organizations and advisor for the Student Government Association.
