The Dean of Students Office

The Dean of Students Office provides holistic support for the full range of the student experience at the Divinity School. In partnership with the broader University community, we advance the Divinity School’s mission to prepare students for careers of field-defining scholarship, teaching, and publicly engaged leadership by supporting students’ academic development, aiding their personal well-being, and strengthening their professional and vocational preparation.

The Dean of Students Office is committed to fostering an inclusive environment for all Divinity School students and as such, offers support, advocacy, and advising- from the admission process through graduation, and beyond. 

The Dean of Students Office holds office hours during the academic quarter on Wednesdays, 12PM-2PM, in-person and on online.
