Learn, Serve, Succeed!

The Dean of Students is a member of the Student Affairs division. The Dean of Students unit actively partners with the campus community to provide transformational, holistic programs and services that challenge and empower students to learn, serve, and succeed. We contribute to the mission of the University by offering programs, services, and support, and by making referrals, all with student learning and success at the core of our work.   

A message from Chancellor John M. Dunn

We are aware of an old video of an SIU student making racist remarks that is circulating on social media. As individuals and as an institution, we must loudly condemn racism and its expression. These hurtful, damaging comments do not represent our community. As I stated in a previous message, diversity and inclusion are embedded in our mission. We urge all members of our community to model our values and demonstrate respect for others. I assure the campus community that we investigate and take appropriate action when we receive reports about acts of racism.
Tomorrow, the first SIU system-wide “Conversation of Understanding” will focus on hurtful speech and its impact. This timely discussion will take place from 5 to 7 p.m. on the SIU system office YouTube channel. SIU System President Dan Mahony and incoming SIU Carbondale Chancellor Austin A. Lane are among the panelists. We all encourage you to participate as we work together to combat racism.

If you have witnessed or have knowledge of a possible hazing incident, report the incident immediately to Dean of Students and/or the police.
