Dear Highlanders,

Welcome to the website for the Associate Vice Chancellor and Dean of Students. As we navigate this pandemic together, it is critical for you to have a HUB of information and resources. Our offices remain accessible to the UC Riverside (UCR) community in this remote environment. As you navigate through this website, you will notice the various offices that make up the Division of Student Affairs. You can think of this office as your compass to campus resources. If you are not sure what office to connect with, you can always start here. The best way to access our office is through email at deanofstudents@ucr.edu or leave a message at (951) 827-6095.

No one person has the answers to all of your questions. This campus has many moving pieces and we are here to help you navigate. In collaboration with our campus partners across the institution, we are committed to connecting you and supporting you as you make your way to the appropriate resources and ultimately, toward graduation. Our team of student affairs professionals are invested in your personal, social, and intellectual developments as well as your academic success. So please feel free to reach out to our student affairs team to help you navigate the processes, procedures and policies that make up UCR. We want all of you to have a successful experience. We are here for you and we are rooting for you! Wishing you much success!

Go Highlanders!
