It is my distinct honor to serve as your Assistant Vice President and Dean of Students. The Office of the Dean of Students is committed to the educational mission of Valdosta State University. We have established partnerships with faculty and staff throughout campus to prepare students to become global citizens through engagement, and co-curricular living learning environments. As your Dean, my goal is to create a vibrant community that enhances the quality of your student life experience. The areas that are under my supervision are: Residence Life, Counseling Center, Health Center, and the Office of Student Conduct.

Here, you will find that we encourage open dialogue, vigorous debate, and the free exchange of ideas. The Valdosta State University community is also dedicated to the core values known as the Blazer Creed, where we demonstrate civility, integrity and citizenship. As members of this sacred community, we will devote ourselves to upholding these values for the betterment of our campus. I am excited that you have chosen our institution for your academic pursuit.
