Dean of Students

The glue that holds the campus community together

The Dean of Students is the main office of the Office of Student Life. We connect students to resources and help create policies that improve everyone’s experience at IU Bloomington.

If you don’t know who to contact or where to start, the Dean of Students Office can help. Our staff helps you deal with the heavy issues, so you can focus on learning, growing, and graduating.

Campus Safety Walk

Each semester the Office of the Vice Provost for Student Life and Dean of Students, in partnership with colleagues from IU Emergency Management and the IU Facilities department, hosts a campus safety walk. Students, staff and faculty walk through selected areas of campus to review safety measures and provide recommendations for improvement.

Gender equality

Gender inequality is a very real problem in college as well as in the workplace. We host leadership and professional development workshops for women, help female students navigate unique challenges like pregnancy and parenting, and advocate against sexual harassment and discrimination.
