Student in conversation at a desk

CAE Assistant Deans take turns serving as Dean on Call. Assistant Deans are available to take phone calls or walk-ins during open hours. They are available to help students or advise with the L&S academic policy, answer degree progress questions, and anything related to the process of graduation.

Scope of Services

No appointment is necessary to visit with the Dean on Call in B47 Bascom. Deans can be helpful in addressing many different situations, and referring to resources. These sessions are not advising appointments, but are primarily informational.  

The Dean on Call can also provide Dean’s actions and may consult with the student’s assigned advisor.  These collaborative sessions may require a longer time or follow-up appointment on that Dean’s schedule.

Dean on Call Hours:

Academic Year: 9:00 am - 12:00 pm (Monday through Wednesday, excluding holidays)

Please be prepared to share the following information:

  • Name
  • I.D. number
