An active campus life provides educational opportunities outside of the classroom at California State University, Fullerton. Students can take full advantage of the many activities, programs and seminars offered as part of a well-developed co-curriculum on campus. Students not only attend events but also participate in the planning and implementation of a full slate of activities held throughout the year.
DEAN OF STUDENTS OFFICE
The Dean of Students Office creates learning environments in which students may explore their intellectual, emotional, social, ethical and identity development with the support of professional staff resources. Students are empowered to embrace all of the learning opportunities at the university as they become responsible community members through program planning, leadership opportunities, and development and enforcement of community standards. Students are challenged and also supported as they participate and learn. Programs and support services are provided to student organizations, student leaders, new students, and other members of the campus. In turn, students then provide programs and services to the study body, the broader CSUF community, and the local area through community service and serving-learning activities. We want students to graduate having developed character, civility towards others, sensitivity to community needs, and an improved ability to contribute to society as a result of their participation. The Deans of Students Office is also a key point of contact for students with concerns, parents with questions and community members.
