Welcome to the Office of the Dean of Students
At Purdue University, we empower all students to discover, pursue, and achieve their personal and educational goals. Built into the foundation of our office are four principles: student support, student advocacy, student engagement, and student success. We strive to promote a holistic learning experience through programs and services that develop students intellectually, socially, and ethically. In addition, we are also a resource for parents, families, faculty and staff in sustaining student retention, graduation, and overall success. We value our diverse student population and provide a variety of services, programs and opportunities that meet our students’ needs. In addition to fostering responsibility and student development, the Office of the Dean of Students advocates for student issues, needs and concerns; responds to emergency and crisis situations affecting students; and represents the University to various constituencies.
