From the Dean’s Office

College is a time to learn and grow. Exposure to diversity – of ideas, people, and activity – is crucial to a well-rounded education. If you reach out, that is what you will find at Keene State College. The college promotes student learning through services, programs, and opportunities that will allow you to balance your intellectual, physical, emotional, social, and spiritual growth. The Dean’s Office is dedicated to supporting your well-being, growth, and success, in a caring atmosphere.

Our role is to assist and support you in achieving your academic and personal goals. We also serve in an advocacy role and will hear your concerns and help you understand the policies and procedures of the College in order to advance resolution of your concerns and/or refer you to appropriate services. Frequent concerns deal with student personal and/or family problems and the Dean of Students Office can act as a liaison with both internal and external resources.

Please take time to familiarize yourself with the Student Handbook and to acquaint yourself with services, policies, and opportunities. Above all, take full advantage of attending Keene State and get involved in the life of the college.

What you do and learn here will last a lifetime.
