A Note from the Dean of Students
A quick look at our Parents and Families website should tell you all you need to know about how we at Wheaton see our relationship with parents and others who trust us with the education of a student you care about. We see this as a partnership, one with the same goal: the success of your student, culminating in a walk across the stage on Commencement Day, you in the audience taking pictures while your student is handed a hard-earned diploma.
That image is a good metaphor for the relationship we hope you’ll have with your student. They do the work and get the credit, and you are in the cheering section, encouraging the kind of intellectual engagement Wheaton is known for.
We hope we get to know you over your student’s time at Wheaton. Please come to Family Weekend, to concerts and plays, to games, meets and matches. I’m often at these as well, and if you see me, please come introduce yourself and let me know how we’re doing educating and supporting your Wheaton student.
Darnell T. Parker, Ed.D.
Vice President for Student Affairs and Dean of Students
