The Office of the Dean of Students

The Office of the Dean of Students (ODOS) supports student learning and interpersonal growth through programming and services designed to create engaged citizen leaders. On the second floor of Peabody Hall, students will find a team that is available to assist students in navigating and developing a unique student experience, grounded in the history and traditions of one of the finest higher education institutions in the world. The office also works in partnership with the Women's Center's Gender Violence and Social Change (GVSC) to provide education to students about sexual violence, and to support victims and survivors. The Office also serves as the starting point for any student who wishes to file a complaint with the University’s Sexual Misconduct Board, the disciplinary body on Grounds that adjudicates alleged cases of sexual assault.

Students are eligible to receive support services from either office regardless of whether they elect to pursue criminal, civil, or administrative remedies through the University
