Dean of Students

Every student deserves a positive educational experience. The Dean of Students is here to ensure that your experience at FVCC is positive and to address any issues that may arise.

The Dean of Students is a primary resource for connecting students who are navigating personal, academic or other situations to supportive campus and community resources. The Dean of Students will discuss the situation with you and provide guidance on available options.

All reports made to the Dean of Students will be taken seriously and information will be provided to the proper office for review.

As members of the campus community, it is your choice whether to report an incident. The Dean of Students will support you during this process by providing information, support and advocacy.
