About Us



Assistant Deans for Student Affairs work in collaboration with academic colleges, CSUF Irvine Center, Tuffy's Graduation Scholars, and Office of First Year Experience to integrate co-curricular programs into the academic setting.  These initiatives are supported by the Dean of the College, the Associate Vice President, and the Executive Director for Retention Initiatives.
