The Dean of Students serves as a resource for all students with the goal of cultivating a supportive campus community for everyone. The office also serves as a primary contact for parents and families of WCU students. The ultimate goal of the Dean of Students is to promote and enhance a supportive campus community that is based upon community principles and values student advocacy.
The WCU campus community creates transformational learning experiences, educates students on the value of living in a diverse, dynamic global community and encourages the personal and professional development of each student. We’re dedicated to maintaining an inclusive, safe, student-focused environment. Students receive proactive education on developing positive, healthy relationships and appropriate communication and conflict management skills as well as making informed decisions pertaining to alcohol and drug use.
In addition, the Dean of Students office works hard to spread information about all the great activities, organizations, and support available on and around campus so no student can say, “There’s nothing to do.” Truthfully, with over 150 student organizations, intramurals, performing groups, cheering on our Division I NCAA sports teams, work opportunities, and keeping up with your studies, there’s so much going on, you’ll find yourself with more choices that you’ll be able to fit into your schedule.
Of course, it’s an understatement to say that families are critical partners of WCU during the time their students are enrolled, and we encourage parents and/or families to check out our WCU Family resources as well as campus events such as Family Weekend.
