Office of the Dean of Students


The Office of the Dean of Students is committed to advocacy and education centered on student growth and self-responsibility by serving as a central resource for UNCW students, faculty and staff. Through collaboration with the university and Wilmington community, we provide assistance to members of the UNCW community by:

  • Educating students about their rights and responsibilities as members of our community;
  • Assisting students, faculty and staff with interpretation of campus policies, including the Code of Student Life and the Student Academic Honor Code;
  • Training and educating faculty, staff and students on community standards and conflict resolution;
  • Establishing grievance and conflict resolution procedures;
  • Referring students to a myriad of resources to increase the likelihood of their success;
  • Assisting in the coordination of 24 hour emergency and crisis response; and
  • Providing resources and education for special populations including off campus and non-traditional students; and graduate students. 

Our goal is to foster a respectful and dynamic community that affirms the value and contributions of each individual, and which harbors and elevates democracy, civility, and diversity as paramount values.
