Mission Statement

We support student well-being and success by providing care, promoting accountability, and encouraging individual growth and development.

Our Purpose

The Office of the Dean of Students works to advocate, support, and develop students as they navigate their time at the University of Utah. We create and offer educational and leadership experiences that help students thrive in a communal environment. We actively engage in conversations that promote compassionate, welcoming, and safe campus communities. In working with students, we are responsive to their needs and assist them in their academic and personal endeavors. In addition to these core principles, the ODOS serves as an advocate for students facing challenges to their success as students and work to empower students to know and understand their rights and responsibilities as members of our community.
