As a member of the campus leadership team, the Dean of Student Development plays a critical role in fostering equity and student success, and sustaining an inclusive campus climate. The position is responsible for providing leadership in the development, implementation, and evaluation of student support programs and services while engaging with the external community to create partnerships and develop strong beneficial relationships. The Dean of Students must have a collaborative and community-building leadership style; be well-versed in holistic student development theories, and have an understanding and appreciation for the mission of community colleges.
