The resource centers, advising units, and affinity groups that comprise the Dean of Students Office focus on identity development, student support, and advocacy, and create opportunities for students to explore the intersectionality of identity development.

As a unit in Student and Campus Life, we work to promote a cohesive campus community that brings people together across lines of difference and allows all students to benefit from the educational and cultural value of various identities.
