Recognizing that education is a process occurring both inside and outside the classroom, the Dean of Students staff is concerned with your well-being as a person living and learning in a community of scholars. As a result, you should feel free to consult with staff members in this office about any aspect of life at Clark — personal or academic.
If you have a question, or many questions, and you’re unsure whom to ask, this is a good place to start. The Dean of Students’ Office can provide you with information about leadership opportunities, emergency loans, student records, leaves of absence, withdrawals or matters concerning your University status. If we don’t have the information, we’ll direct you to the person or department where you can find the answers you need. Stop by when you have a chance so we can get to know you and you can learn about us.
As partners in the educational process, the Division of Student Affairs is committed to fostering an environment that encourages students to become active, involved and responsible citizens in the global community. To this end, we strive to shape a community that promotes mutual respect, support for growth, and a celebration of differences. The division also empowers development of balanced, caring and reflective individuals committed to academic and interpersonal excellence.
