Association Deans in the College of Arts & Sciences

What is an Association Dean?

To facilitate academic advising, every student in the College of Arts and Sciences is placed in an advising “Association.” (See below for information about similar support for students in Nursing, Engineering, Batten, Curry, and McIntire.)

Association Deans provide broad academic support to students in the College of Arts & Sciences. Every student in the College, by virtue of their placement in an Advising Association, has an Association Dean. Your dean can advise you on academic matters, help you to think broadly about your long-term plans, and connect you to the appropriate support services at the University. They are committed to your academic success. If your Dean does not know the answer to your question, they will connect you to the person or office who does.

How do I contact my Association Dean?

All the College Association Deans have offices in Monroe Hall, where the undergraduate advising offices are located. Each Association Dean schedules regular office hours in
