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.    

The Division of Student Affairs is committed to all students at Southern Illinois University Carbondale.  Our vision statement says, “We influence campus culture by fostering an inclusive, engaging learning environment…”  One of our values is inclusivity, meaning “we celebrate the unique and creative potential of every individual while providing positive spaces and conversations where everyone belongs.”

On Saturday, April 14, 2018 an inappropriate tweet was reported to the Vice Chancellor of Student Affairs. The tweet was removed quickly by the members of Tau Kappa Epsilon fraternity.  This incident is currently being investigated by Student Rights and Responsibilities and I have learned from the fraternity that the new member who tweeted was quickly expelled on Sunday, April 15, 2018.  Tau Kappa Epsilon wrote in an email “Our chapter simply will not tolerate blatant racism and hate speech.  We sincerely apologize for this incident occurring.”

If you have any information or concerns, please contact the Dean of Students Office at (618) 453-2461.  We expect all members of the SIUC campus community to be considerate and tolerant of the ideas of others.
