The Dean of Students office, housed in the Division of Student Affairs will serve as a clearinghouse for concerns that pertain to student services, said Roeder.
“This office is a place for people to come to for help in navigating the University system, and for answers to any other questions they may have regarding the University,” Roeder said.
