About Us

Message From the Dean


Professionals and students in the Office of the Assistant Vice President & Dean of Students collaborate to facilitate learning opportunities and experiences that extend beyond the classroom. We provide students with activities that foster knowledge and success, and create a complete University experience where students achieve an understanding of themselves and the world around them. To ensure that every University of South Florida student graduates with a set of skills that carries into their future endeavors, we focus our work into the following areas: Advocacy, Leadership Development, Involvement, Civic Engagement, Multiculturalism, Diversity, & Inclusion, and Responsible Community Behaviors. We encourage students to stretch their comfort zones and discover new friends, interests, passions, and talents. We invite you to join with us to ensure that every Bull has access to the tools and connections they need to make their USF experience unique and complete.
