Dean of Students


Dean of Students

Students are at the heart of a university. As the Dean of Students team, our role is to assist and support you in achieving your academic and personal goals. Should you need additional assistance in utilizing the processes presented in the handbook, student conduct code, navigating the grievance and appeals procedures, understanding the student disciplinary procedures or just need a familiar face – do not hesitate to call upon any Dean of Students staff member. We seek to intentionally promote student learning and development through a variety of quality services, programs, and opportunities that will assist you in your academic and personal success.

College is a time to learn and grow. You will find staff, faculty, and administrators that are dedicated to supporting your well-being, growth, and success. Your questions, concerns, comments, and suggestions are always welcome, and will help us in our role as student advocates. 
Attending Missouri Southern State University will not only provide you with an education but also foster opportunities to build friendships and skills that will last you a lifetime. We are proud to have you as a member of the “Lion” Family!
