Example usages of this office

  • Sally Sue broke her leg. She needs to navigate winter at Cornell on crutches. The Crisis and Care team within the Dean of Students office helps Sally Sue. 

  • A student group wants to occupy Day Hall. They reach out to the Dean of Students ahead of time, who helps them do so safely. 

Examples of common misconceptions 

  • Very few! Frequently the Dean of Students Office says "it's not here and here's where it is," but they always want to help.
