Dean of Students



My office staff and I are committed to helping all Cal Poly students be successful in and out of the classroom.  Should you have any concerns or questions regarding university policies and procedures, your rights and obligations as a student, or need assistance locating university/community resources please contact my office.  Cal Poly is a place for you to develop academically and personally.  College life can be exciting and provide life-long rewards.  I hope that you will be an active member of the Cal Poly community and take advantage of the many offerings that are available. 

Should you be faced with an unexpected situation and need assistance please contact my office at  805-756-0327 or
