Our Mission

Joe Abhold, Dean of Students

Dr. Joe Abhold, Dean of Students

The Dean of Students Office encourages and supports the personal growth and academic development of our students through programs and services that enrich the Blugold experience. 

The Dean and staff are here to answer questions and concerns of students, faculty, staff and families. This is the place to start when seeking help for anything from a medical or personal crisis or for help in finding the assistance to get back on track in your academics. 

The biggest thing to know is that the Dean of Students is here to make sure all students remain safe and can thrive academically and personally in an inclusive and caring campus community. 


Seek help for a student

If you are a faculty member, staff, or fellow student and you have health or safety concerns about a student please let us know. We can't help when we don't know, so your report will make a difference. See the link below to submit a form to identify a student you feel needs our attention.
