About Us

The Office of the Dean of Students plays an important role in defining and maintaining a healthy and respectful relationship between the University of Alberta and its students.

The Vice-Provost and Dean of Students is the University’s senior administrator responsible for providing a number of specialized support services to help students achieve success and reach their academic potential.

We’re here to facilitate a positive relationship between students, faculty and administration and to promote a respectful environment for all.  One of our roles is to provide assistance to students when needed as they develop relationships with: instructors,departments, faculty offices, the Office of the Registrar, residences – essentially anyone or any unit on campus.

The Office of the Dean of Students is responsible for providing and administering a number of services, collectively called University Student Services, to help students overcome barriers, deal with challenges that can arise, and make it possible for students to maximize their educational experience.
