A Greeting from the Assistant Dean

On behalf of our faculty and staff in the College of the Arts, I would like to extend a warm welcome! We look forward to working with you while you pursue your academic, career, personal and professional goals. As you make your way on campus, we are confident that you will have a great experience if you are engaged and proactive in making choices to become involved! We have found the more information and resources students’ access, the more likely they are to persist and graduate.

I work closely with university colleagues and faculty/staff in the College of the Arts to promote your success as a student. I encourage you to visit your Arts Student Success Center and take advantage of all of the great resources available to you.

Remember, I am available and eager to help you navigate the University and develop a holistic college experience. Consider me your college resource person! You can contact me via phone (657) 278-3256, or by  email .
