Dean of Students
At Wheaton, you'll find that everything connects with everything else, and everyone connects with everyone else.
Almost all of our students live in our residence halls, eat in our dining halls, join our clubs and organizations, play on or support our athletic teams, attend our concerts, theater performances and lectures, and take advantage of our support services.
In other words, Wheaton students are engaged in the life of the college, and the college is fully committed to the lives of our students. The Office of the Dean of Students is a campus crossroads where those connections happen.
Students may come to the Dean of Students Office for a number of reasons. You might be seeking assistance with a difficult personal or academic situation, or you’d like an objective point of view or perhaps mediation with other students or faculty. You may be sorting out family or health concerns that might affect your academic plans, or you have ideas about how to make your own, and others' Wheaton experiences better.
Parents also call the Dean’s Office when they’re concerned about their student’s well-being, or have questions about the services and support Wheaton provides.
The Dean's office includes two administrative associates, Jan Hancock and Winnie Collins, Senior Associate Dean Jack Kuszaj, and me. We look forward to being part of what connects you to Wheaton.
