Role of Deans in CAE

Student speaking at a desk

Assistant Deans in CAE are an extension of the L&S Undergraduate Academic Dean's Services. Our role is three-fold:

  1. To provide CAE-affiliated and referred students accurate and comprehensive information about L&S academic rules, deadlines, and procedures.  
  2. To create a welcoming space where we listen to students’ academic needs and hear requests for exceptions to L&S policy.   
  3. To make discretionary decisions based on the interpretation and implementation of the L&S policies as they relate to individual student cases.

Students often have many questions and don’t know where to turn for answers, or are afraid to ask.  If you are one of those students, please contact our office for assistance.
